EAA hosts first-ever Girls on the Fly event April 29
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (March 13, 2023) — Girls interested in aviation as a hobby or career will have a chance to learn more about the industry as EAA hosts the first-ever Girls on the Fly event at the EAA Aviation Museum.
The event is free to attend, and open to girls in 6th through 12th grade. The event runs from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Activities include building RC planes, Redbird Flight Simulators, Young Eagles flights (weather permitting), hands-on experience with aviation technology, and hearing from girls and women with a passion for aviation.
“Our goal with Girls on the Fly is to introduce the next generation of girls to the wonders of aviation,” said Cindi Pokorny, Educator in EAA’s Youth Education Center. “Being able to offer hands-on activities and the chance to interact with women who share a passion for aviation is a great way for girls to determine if aviation is the right path for them as a hobby or career.”
Girls on the Fly is supported by Air Wisconsin Airlines, DATC, and FliteTest. Online pre-registration is required, and is limited to 48 attendees. Lunch will also be served for free. More information on the event can be found at EAA.org/GirlsOnTheFly.
