Local girls introduced to aviation in free program

The Garden State Angels Chapter of Women in Aviation International (WAI) has announced that a free event is offered to local girls ages 8 to 16 years to introduce them to the possibilities of recreational flying, as well as potential careers in aviation. The day’s activities will take place at Ocean County Airport, also known as Miller Airpark, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Saturday, September 23, 2017.

“We want to encourage girls to explore flying and aviation in a friendly and supportive atmosphere,” says WAI Chapter President Melissa Lekas. “We will have craft activities, giveaways, brochures, literature and a flight school tour for the girls to enjoy.”

The Garden State Angels Chapter will join Women in Aviation International chapters around the world on September 23, 2017, for an outreach event to inspire the next generation of women in aviation. Chapters all over the world are putting on their own, unique programs, and U.S. states are proclaiming September 23, 2017 to be Girls in Aviation Day in their state. Attendees will also be able to earn the new Girl Scout Aviation Girl Fun Patch. Be sure to register with Melissa at 732-754-4891

“The program is free for participants and their chaperones,” added Melissa. “We just want to see have a chance to be opened up to aviation, interact with pilots, see a small plane and sit in a cockpit.”
