Local Women in Aviation Chapter hosts free Girls in Aviation Day in 2019
The Four Lake Chapter of Women in Aviation International (WAI), based in Madison, WI, will be hosting the Madison area’s first ever Girls in Aviation Day on October 05, 2019. This free event is being offered to local girls ages 8 to 11 years to introduce them to the wonders of aviation. The Four Lakes Chapter is inviting 40 girls along with their chaperones to participate in fun, hands-on aviation related activities while giving them first-hand experience with important aspects of aviation such as the science of flight, navigation, air traffic control communications, and a tour of aircrafts. The event will also showcase female aviators and introduce girls to career opportunities in the growing aviation industry.
“We could not be more excited to introduce girls in our community to female role models in aviation and aerospace such as pilots, air traffic controllers, aviation mechanics, and flight instructors,” says Four Lakes Chapter President Sarah Pozdell. “The afternoon of aviation fun will educate girls on the thrill of aviation and the variety of opportunities available in aviation and aerospace while they build their confidence during the hands-on activities.”
The Four Lakes Chapter will join Women in Aviation International chapters around the world on October 5, 2019, for an outreach event to inspire the next generation of women in aviation. Chapters all over the world are putting on their own, unique programs, and U.S. states are proclaiming October 5, 2019 to be Girls in Aviation Day in their state.
