Check out the details below about an incredible event by the local Women in Aviation Chapter! 51 young ladies in our community got to spend the day in, and around aviation.
"What an amazing first Girls in Aviation Day for local WAI Chapter, Sierra Battle Born! 51 girls ages 5-18 spent a couple hours working through 10 different aviation related stations all run by incredible volunteers. Participants learned about Air Traffic Control, parts of a plane, how planes fly, the phonetic alphabet, how to read an aviation sectional, how to marshall an aircraft, cloud identification, heroes in aviation, as well as try on on flight gear and an opportunity to meet Becky Calder, the first female Top Gun graduate.The Nevada Air National Guard was also on hand talking about different aviation careers in the military. During a built in break, the girls had a special visit from Amelia Earhart. An incredible event introducing the youth in our community to aviation. Thank you to our sponsors as well as Atlantic Aviation, the Nevada Air National Guard, and all of our amazing, hard working volunteers!"
