Young women dreaming of a career in aviation can see if the wings fit at an upcoming event hosted by Women in Aviation International.
Girls in Aviation is the first such offering at Winnipeg’s Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada. Designed for girls aged 8-16, the morning will include interactive activities, meet and greets with a pilot, flight attendant, air traffic controller, airline dispatcher, maintenance engineer, airport operations manager and aerospace engineer. Different career stations will be set up throughout the museum.
The free event is Saturday, September 26 from 9 a.m. to noon. Pre-registration is required, and parent/chaperone tickets are also available.
