By General Aviation News

EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. — The Experimental Aircraft Association’s Women Soar You Soar day camp program, which allows 100 high school-age girls to discover more about aviation and all its possibilities from aviators, engineers and leaders during EAAAirVenture Oshkosh, is now open for registration.

The Women Soar You Soar program, scheduled for July 19-22, is looking for both enrollees and female mentors from the aviation and aerospace fields.

The program’s 100-to-25 attendees-to-mentor ratio provides an opportunity for young women to discover all the possibilities within the world of flight, with the guidance of women who are already noteworthy and established in the field.

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 airshows.
