Have you ever looked up at the clouds and wondered what it would be like to fly? As a young girl, I used to lie on my back, look up at the sky and daydream about this very thing.
Now girls ages 8-17 will have the opportunity to learn all about aviation for FREE when they join the Women in Aviation International Air Capital Chapter for their 5th annual Girl’s in Aviation event.
This FREE event is open to the first 100 girls who register online. (All participants must register online ahead of time as space is limited.) It will take place on Saturday, October 5, 2019, from 9 a.m.-noon. (Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.)
Girls will have the chance to meet women with careers in aviation, learn about airport jobs, learn how to talk like a pilot and check out different types of planes. The WSU FutureMaker Mobile Learning Lab and the Bombardier Flight Test Telemetry Truck will be there.
Girls will also be able to participate in 6 different rotating activities. In years past, those crafts have included: the chance to use aircraft mechanic tools, test their own aeronautical designs, construct and fly a craft stick airplane and more!
This year’s event will be held at the Kansas Aviation Museum which is located at 3350 S. George Washington Blvd. The event is free but registration is required. Visit the Women in Aviation website for more information and to register.
