Girls Inc. recently received a grant for $10,000 from the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, or AOPA.
The grant is allowing the nonprofit organization to have a “Sky Girls” aviation program. In that program, the girls will learn about air traffic controllers and their alphabet, women in aviation, and weather experiments, have field trips to an aviation museum, and hear from women pilots, a press release said.
In November, the girls were able to ride in a tethered hot air balloon from Tennessee Balloon Rides, the release said.
