Registration is now open for the “Girls in Aviation Day” on Saturday, Sept. 21 at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie.

The event, founded by Women in Aviation, is an effort to increase female participation and enthusiasm for careers in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and aviation. ‚ÄčThe members of the Minnesota chapter have a passion for aviation and include professional pilots, air traffic controllers, mechanics and aviation enthusiasts.

The local group created the free aviation-related event for girls to get a glimpse into exciting aviation career opportunities. The chapter hopes to inspire the next group of young aviators and scientists to pursue opportunities in aviation and STEM-related fields.
