Girls in Aviation Camp
Girls in Aviation Summer STEM program at the National Flight Academy August 11 – August 16!
Congratulations Kassandra Saxler and Helene Trudeau, scholarship winners!
The Girls in Aviation 6-Day Deployment is designed to introduce and educate girls on the many career choices and lifestyle possibilities offered by the aviation/aerospace industry. Throughout the week, girls had the opportunity to interact with special guest speakers like female pilots, aircraft maintenance professionals and more!
During the NFA’s 6-day overnight program, students lived aboard AMBITION, a state-of-the-art virtual aircraft carrier. They worked together to plan humanitarian missions with ultramodern, advanced technology, learn to fly in 42 networked flight simulators, eat on a mess deck, sleep in staterooms and receive mission briefings in six fully electronic ready rooms.
