Designed for girls ages 10 to 17, Girls in Aviation Day Dallas is a fun-filled, action-packed day planned to introduce aviation, or expand a growing interest. The girls will interact with amazing role models ranging from airline pilots to aircraft mechanics to aviation industry executives. They'll learn how to read a sectional chart, go on a treasure hunt, learn the phonetic alphabet, fly a flight simulator, build an airport, learn to use tools by making wire bracelets, and lots more hands-on activities.

A group lunch featuring speaker Maj. Anne C. McClain, a NASA astronaut candidate, will be followed by access to the Exhibit Hall to interact with companies and organizations. A college fair with representatives from aviation-oriented schools will be of interest to the older girls.

Help encourage the next generation of women in aviation by participating in Girls in Aviation Day Dallas! Call 937-839-4647 to register, or register onsite at the Hilton Anatole.
