Military Aviation Museum Plans Girls In Aviation Day Celebration

The Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach, in partnership with the Southeastern Virginia Chapter of Women in Aviation International (WAI), will honor Girls In Aviation Day on Saturday, September 25.

Girls in Aviation Day (GIAD) is a worldwide event that encourages female participation at airports, museums, and other aviation facilities.  The intent, however, is to educate all children and teens about the aviation field.

Military Aviation Museum will celebrate the day from 9am to 3pm with family activities for both boys and girls, flight demos, guest speakers, food trucks, and other programming.  Activities will include paper airplane competitions, sectional chart scavenger hunts,  a “Dress like a Pilot” photo booth, flight simulators, meet-and-greets with aviators, and more.

Admission to the museum is free for anyone under 17 on September 25. The first 100 girls to register for the event will receive a Girls In Aviation Day kit.  For more information about the event, click here.
