Girl Scout Aviation Day for Girl Scout Juniors and Cadettes was held on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at Chicago Executive Airport, in Wheeling, Illinois. Members of the Chicago Area Chapter of the Ninety-Nines led six sessions between 9:00 a.m. and noon. Topics are: Preflight of airplane, Communication, Navigation, Theory of Flight, Aviation Careers, and Aviation, Past, Present and Future. Over 100 Girl Scouts and parents attended.
