Girls In Aviation Day

September 24, 2022 @ 8:30 am 12:00 pm

On Saturday, September 24, 2022, Northern Spirit Chapter will host the 8th Annual Girls in Aviation Day. The event will take place at the newly re-opened Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada at its new location at the Winnipeg Richardson International Airport.

There has never been a greater demand for skilled employees in aviation and aerospace than today. Manitoba has always been a hub for aviation and Winnipeg is the largest aerospace center in Western Canada and the third largest in Canada. Careers in aviation and aerospace are exciting, dynamic, and rewarding. We want our youth to know that these careers are open to everyone, despite a visible gender gap.

250 girls will have an opportunity to explore the many rewarding careers in the aviation and aerospace industry. The event focuses on interactive and informative stations where the girls will meet women role models and learn about their exciting careers. The career stations will include pilots, air traffic controllers, aerospace engineers, aircraft maintenance engineers, flight attendants, aeromedical attendants, airport emergency services, and Canadian Forces careers.

NOTE: This event is only open to girls aged 8-17. The museum will be open to the public from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm this day.
