Aviation adventures await at EAA Girls on the Fly program on April 6

Free event returns for girls in 6th through 12th grade


EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (February 19, 2024) — Girls in grades 6 through 12 will have the chance to channel their inner aviator as EAA hosts the first Girls on the Fly event of 2024 on Saturday, April 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the EAA Education Center.

The free, all-day event is open to girls in 6th through 12th grade. Girls on the Fly is designed to introduce them to opportunities in aviation as either a career or hobby. Planned activities include hands-on experiences with aviation technology, flight simulators, as well as Young Eagle flights if weather allows.

“One of the primary goals of Girls on the Fly is to demonstrate that aviation, as a hobby or career, goes well beyond just being a pilot,” said Cindi Pokorny, Educator in EAA’s Youth Education Center. “Between building their own RC plane and operating a flight simulator, Girls on the Fly allows girls to decide if aviation in any form is a path they are interested in pursuing further.”

Girls on the Fly is supported by Air Wisconsin Airlines, Airbus, DATC, and FliteTest. Online pre-registration is required, and is limited to 60 attendees. Lunch will also be served for free. More information on the event can be found at EAA.org/GirlsOnTheFly.
