Description

The North Texas Chapter of Women in Aviation International (WAI) will be hosting its fifth annual Girls in Avaition Day - a FREE program for girls ages 8 to 18 designed to introduce them to the possibilities available in a career in aviation - on September 21st, 2019 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas.

The day’s activities will take place from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. More than 2,000 girls along with their chaperones are expected to attend. NEW for this year: Tickets are available for 10:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. and from 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m to allow for more students to attend.

Limited quantities of Girls in Aviation Day backpacks, Aviation for Girls Magazines and other materials will be provided on a first come-first serve basis. If you attended our event last year, we encourage you to wear your Girls in Aviation Day t-shirt! If you do not have a Girls in Aviation Day T-shirt, shirts will be available for a $20 suggested donation.

Attendees will have the opportunity to talk to women in various fields of aviation and aerospace, including pilots, engineers, air traffic controllers, airport managers, business owners, and more. Exciting hands-on activities, such as flight simulators, build-a-helicopter, aviation phonetics, a scavenger hunt through the Frontiers of Flight museum and more will also be available.

All tickets are free through Eventbrite - but limited to 200 for fire code in the auditorium. Don’t worry, if you can’t make the event or can’t snag some tickets, we will be live streaming Tammie Jo’s talk during the event. You can live stream along with us or watch the replay after the event.

If you’ve already secured your tickets for the keynote speaker and find yourself unable to attend or no longer interested in the discussion, please kindly return your digital tickets through eventbrite to help other patrons enjoy the presentation. *This specific session is geared towards 13 year olds and up. We will not restrict the age of participants, but we highly encourage parents to consider leaving (or returning) tickets to leave them for older students. There are more than 20 hands-on activities geared towards the younger audiences and a limited number of inspiring sessions for older students*

Please consider making a donation to the North Texas Chapter of Women in Aviation so we can continue to provide program such as these and scholarships to local students.
