OVERVIEW: The Sprout Experience is teaming up with the International Women’s Air & Space Museum (IWASM) to host a GIRLS ONLY aviation experience program. Girls will spend a whole day exploring the rich history of female pilots and astronauts. They will go on a scavenger hunt and see special museum items. The day will include time in a flight simulator, and then take to the air in a real plane through the EAA Young Eagles program (weather permitting)! Space is very limited.
Just watch. I’ll show you what a woman can do.
I’ll go across the country, I’ll race to the Moon.
I’ll never look back.
