Kick Off 'Daughter Day' at WAI With Free Breakfast, Notable Aviators
February 2, 2012 - As part of this year's Women in Aviation Conference in Dallas, Texas, a special "Bring Your Daughter to the Conference Day" on Saturday, March 10, will introduce girls to the excitement and career opportunities available in aviation.
If you're planning on attending, kick off this memorable day with EAA President/CEO Rod Hightower, his family, and key figures in the aviation world with a free breakfast hosted by EAA in the Madrid Room at the Hilton Anatole Hotel.
Thanks to support from American Airlines, this breakfast is complimentary for girls and their chaperone. Please RSVP for the breakfast by Wednesday, March 7, through Mindy Pearson at 920-426-6820 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Featured speakers at breakfast include noted aerobatic performer and commercial pilot Debby Rihn Harvey, who is this year's Women Soar Steering Committee chairperson, Mrs. Alaska Ariel Talen-Keller, whose platform is dedicated to introducing girls to aviation careers, and First Officer Deborah Hecker from American Airlines.
Breakfast attendees will learn about the EAA Young Eagles Flight Plan, AirVenture's Women Soar camp, and the many scholarship opportunities available through these programs.
A full day of events is planned for "Bring Your Daughter to the Conference Day," with age-appropriate activities organized for the girls. The activities include learning to read a sectional chart, simulator flying, a scavenger hunt, a junior job fair, arts and crafts projects, as well as meeting and interviewing female pilots and other aviation industry executives.
The girls and their parents/chaperones will participate in these activities in the morning, have a group lunch, and then tour the exhibit hall in the afternoon. It's a great way to provide your daughter (or niece, granddaughter, or friend) a meaningful experience that might impact their lives for years to come.
