Join us at the Commemorative Air Force Florida Wing Hangar in DeLand to learn all about aviation! This program is specifically designed for older girls and will provide a general introduction to aviation!
Specifically, girls will have a hands-on aviation experience, including:
- An opportunity to use the Wing’s new flight simulator and attend a wrap around video presentation in the hangar’s brand new dome theater.
- An overview of careers in aviation, the role of women in aviation and their early contributions to flight
- A basic introduction to principles of flight and the airplane and its parts
- Participation in a pre-flight inspection of aircraft and have an opportunity to sit in the cockpit of our military training aircraft
This program is only open to Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors. A light snack will be provided. All participating Girl Scouts will receive a fun patch. Parents are welcome to stay and observe, or they may drop off girls and pick them up at the end of the program.
