10th Anniversary: September 21, 2024

Girls in Aviation Day brings together hundreds of girls – those who already have a passion for flight, and those who have never traveled in a plane or seen a plane up close – to be inspired by talented and accomplished inspiring women role models in the aviation industry.

Girls will participate in activities ranging from aircraft tours to flight simulations, to hands-on mechanics and drone “STEMonstrations,” as well as meteorology workshops and an amazing career fair. The primary goal of the day’s program is to uplift young girls as future aviators, astronauts, scientists, engineers and incredible leaders.

We believe aviation inspires achievement and endless possibilities!
