Women In Aviation: Girls In Aviation Day
On Saturday, September 24th, our FBO (Covington Municipal Airport) hosted the annual Women in Aviation: Girls In Aviation Day. This event – spearheaded by pilots, mechanics, flight attendants, FAA employees, etc. – was dedicated to creating a learning environment for young girls and boys who may be interested in aviation.
Aerodox hosted a booth where we taught attendees the aviation alphabet – what it means and why it is used. We included a variety of quizzes and games that involved learning and utilizing the alphabet; however, the most popular activity by far was writing your first and last initial on a name tag using the corresponding letters from the aviation alphabet. For example, if your name was Johanna Smith, your name tag would read Juliet Sierra.
We look forward to attending again next year!
