The National Flight Academy’s Girls in Aviation Day was limited to the first 72 registrants with lunch included. The event is open to students in 3rd – 8th grade.

Girls will rotate through four different educational spaces in the National Flight Academy and learn about Forces of Flight, navigate through a drone obstacle course and learn to track a drone, giving them a sense of what it’s like in an Air Traffic Control tower. Lastly, they will fly simulators in pilot and copilot teams. The event will conclude in National Naval Aviation Museum’s Blue Angels Atrium with guest speaker CAPT Corrie Mays, USMC F/A-18 Officer, former Blue Angel.

All registrants will receive a pink Girls in Aviation Day drawstring backpack, “Aviation for Girls” magazine, Delta Air Lines hat and other National Flight Academy giveaways! All Girls Scouts will receive a free GIAD Girl Scout Patch.
