Registration is now open for EAA's annual Women Soar You Soar day camp. The program—which offers 100 high school-age girls the opportunity to discover more about aviation and all its possibilities from mentors in a variety of aviation fields including pilots, engineers, mechanics, and more—is scheduled for July 19-22, 2015.
The Women Soar You Soar program is welcoming both participants and female mentors from the aviation and aerospace fields. The program's unique 100-to-25 attendees-to-mentor ratio provides a tremendous opportunity for young women to discover all the possibilities within the world of flight, with the possibility to ask questions of women who are already noteworthy and established in the field.
"The close-knit community between girls and the mentors creates a bond during Women Soar You Soar that is unlike any similar program within aviation or technology," said Janine Diana, EAA vice president of people and culture. "Add to that the excitement and fun at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh—the World's Greatest Aviation Celebration—and it creates an unforgettable adventure for young women who are just discovering where they want to go in life."
Activities over the four-day session for girls entering grades nine through 12 in fall 2015 include flight simulators, workshops, sessions with aviation personalities, and insider access during the AirVenture air shows.
Cost is $75 per participant. The program is a day camp and accommodations are not included. More information and registration materials are available at www.EAA.org/WomenSoar.
Women Soar You Soar is supported by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Women in Aviation International, International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading, and Jerry and Lori Fussell.
