“With so many success stories from our Girls in Aviation Day events during the past seven years, we are thrilled to make a meaningful impact again with our re-designed Aviation for Girls App in addition to a record-breaking number of events this year,” says WAI CEO Allison McKay. “We know that introducing the next generation to positive female models in all areas of aviation will help move the needle to break barriers for women in all aviation and aerospace careers. With the generous support of WAI corporate sponsors, and dedicated WAI chapters and corporate members, we’ll deliver the experience of a lifetime that opens doors of previously unimagined opportunity in aviation and aerospace for girls around the globe.” More than 16,000 girls, ages 8-17, around the world on September 24 will be able to experience the 8th Annual Girls in Aviation Day in their local communities through unique events hosted by Women in Aviation International (WAI) Chapters and Corporate Members. Over 120 events are planned at airports, FBOs, museums, and hangars in 19 countries across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Girls will be introduced to career and lifestyle possibilities in aviation and aerospace through meeting female role models, career panels, exploring airplanes and airports, and a host of hands-on, fun and educational activities.To find a GIAD event near you, click here:  https://www.wai.org/find-your-local-giad-2022-event.
