EAA's Women Soar You Soar Expands To Four Days

More Experiences Await Young Women Interested In Aviation-Based Careers

Entering its seventh year of inspiring young women to reach for their dreams in aviation, "Women Soar You Soar" is expanding to four days in 2011 and will now be held on the final weekend of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.

Women Soar Mentors Oshkosh 2010

Women Soar You Soar, scheduled for Thursday, July 28, through Sunday, July 31, will introduce 100 young women to aviation-based careers and a women-mentor network, providing encouragement and support to consider a career in aviation. They will participate in a variety of activities, including flight simulation, workshops, wing rib assembly, and mentor sessions. The program is available to young women entering grades nine through 12 in fall 2011. During the first six years of the program, hundreds of teenage girls have benefited from the experiences and guidance of women actively involved in the world of flight.

With the program shifting dates in 2011, attendees will also experience a variety of exciting AirVenture attractions taking place on the final weekend - including WomenVenture, one of the largest gatherings of women aviators and enthusiasts, and the widely popular Night Air Show on Saturday, July 30. "Expanding Women Soar You Soar to four days and shifting it to AirVenture's final weekend will give attendees the chance to engage with more inspiring aviation figures and experience what a career in aviation has to offer as we create the next generation of aviators," said Elissa Lines, EAA vice president of business and donor relations. "These young women will undoubtedly come away excited about the opportunity they have before them."

Applications will be accepted through June 30, 2011, and are available online. The cost is $75, which includes lodging at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, meals, and admission to EAA AirVenture. Registration scholarships are also available for young women meeting financial need requirements. Space in the program is limited.
