Girl Scouts 2007

On January 6, 2007, Chapter 99 again joined forces with Flight Safety International to help about 30 local Girl Scouts obtain their Aerospace Merit Badge. Activities were spread between our meeting room, a hangar, several aircraft outside, and two classrooms at the Flight Safety Academy across the road. Subjects covered at Flight Safety were Women in Aviation careers, navigation and aircraft weight and balance. At our meeting room the girls practiced flying a flight simulator, received instruction in theory of flight and in pre-flighting an aircraft, and saw an aircraft under construction.

Responsible members from Chapter 99 were Marty, Keith G. with the help of Jim M., a student from Flight Safety, and two female instructors from Flight Safety who talked about Women in Aviation. John demonstrated aircraft construction on his Zenair 701 project. Ken M. and Bill Z. both brought their airplane out for pre-flight instruction. Gene and Vernon made sure everybody got his/her fill in refreshments.
The girls did not go on Young Eagles flights, but were invited to come back to one of our future Young Eagles Saturdays.
Many thanks to all who participated.
