Women Soar Activities & Workshops

Girls have the opportunity to participate in several hands-on activities, such as:

 

Mentor Sessions

 

Spend quality time in small group discussions led by women who have achieved recognition in various aviation fields. Learn firsthand what it takes to achieve the career of your dreams from women who have opened the doors in many careers previously closed to women.

 

EAA Flight Simulator

 

Pitch, yaw, and roll in the EAA Flight Simulator. It may not be the real thing, but it's the next best thing.

 

Air Show Viewing

 

Spend the afternoon watching pilots perform amazing maneuvers at the air show, while sharing quality time with appointed mentors.

 

Workshops

 

Experience a taste of aircraft building in workshops designed to teach such hands-on skills such as sheet metal construction, riveting, fabric covering, building wing ribs, welding, composite work, engine assembly, sheet metal forming and more.

 

Meet WASP Members

 

The Women Air Force Service Pilots, known as the WASP, were a pioneering organization of civilian female pilots who flew military aircraft under the direction of the U.S. Army Air Force during gender-sensitive days of World War II.

  

Allowing the women to fly freed up a male pilot for combat service and duties.

  

Learn their history from the women who served!

 

University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Career Workshop

 

Talk with college counselors and advisors to learn about career selection and planning, plus how to develop your personal "flight plan" to achieve your goals. You'll also learn how to select a school; prepare educationally and emotionally for the challenges; and seek support, scholarship, and other forms of help and direction.
