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.
