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.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
