Funds to expand distribution of Aviation for Girls magazine
Women in Aviation International received a $10,000 grant from the International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading (ISTAT) Foundation, which funds educational programs that advance commercial aviation. This is the second year that WAI has received an ISTAT grant.
The grant will be used to expand the distribution of Aviation for Girls magazine and WAI will identify ISTAT as the sponsor of this year’s issue. Aviation for Girls is an important resource for WAI’s international Girls in Aviation Day, which will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2016. That day, WAI chapters around the world will provide learning opportunities and conduct hands-on aviation activities to introduce girls, ages 8 to 16, to the aviation lifestyle as well as to the career possibilities in aviation and aerospace.
