Girls in Aviation Day Long Beach
Saturday, March 16
Long Beach Convention Center
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
For girls ages 8-17
Girls from ages 8 to 17 will be introduced to the career possibilities and amazing lifestyle aviation and aerospace present. Through a host of hands-on activities, speakers, games and more, girls get immersed in all that aviation has to offer. What’s more, it’s all fun!
Older girls will be able to meet with representatives from aviation colleges and universities. There will be no shortage of role models for the girls as they hear from actual working women about their unique aviation careers. Flying a simulator, reading a sectional chart, learning the phonetic alphabet: It’s all part of Girls in Aviation Day Long Beach.
In addition to daughters, granddaughters, nieces and friends of conference attendees, local Girl Scouts are included to make this a day packed with new friends, new information and loads of fun – all designed to attract more girls to aviation. Chaperones, please plan to stay with the kids you bring - this is not a "drop-off" event.
