Girl Scout Aviation Day and Earning GS Aviation Badges

[[IMAGE: Terri 1]]

Hi, I'm Terri Sanders. I'm a native of Kentuckiana and an almost 50 year Girl Scout (first involved 1969...giving my age here!). Girl Scouts are known for encouraging and empowering girls to challenge themselves and experience new opportunities beyond the norm. In 2002, some amazing ladies I'll tell you more about in a minute first came together to organize a special learning opportunity for local Girl Scout troops in the Louisville, Kentucky area to begin learning about the exciting and challenging careers available for women in aviation.

That special learning opportunity was called "Aviation Day". Learn more about the Louisville, Kentucky <<Aviation Day LINK internal page>> held annually since 2002.

Looking to organize your own local "Aviation Day" for girls? <<Contact us LINK internal page>>, we can help.


Additionally, between 2014-2017, our group of amazing volunteers created a Kentucky Bluegrass Ninety Nines' (International Organization of Women Pilots) approved course curriculum of age-appropriate requirements, education and activities to empower girl-led self-study of aviation so that learning and badge-earning could take place independent of a local "Aviation Day". Pamphlets for each badge level provide instructions of requirements to be completed by a girl and overseen by a troop leader, including Girl Scout and Girl Guide levels from Brownie (grades 2-3), Juniors (grades 4-5), Cadettes (grades 6-8), Seniors (grades 9-10) and Ambassadors (grades 11-12).

INCLUDED FREE: All purchases of AviationBadges.com scouting badges of ANY QUANTITY will receive a copy of the age-apprioriate, color-printed pamphlet for that badge level! Purchasers may make non-modified pamphlet copies without restriction.
