KY Bluegrass Ninety-Nines, an international organization of licensed women pilots is teaming up with Girl Scouts to offer a day of exploration through the eyes of professional women in aviation on March 11, 2017. Scouts will earn the Cadette Aviation badge while visiting eight presentations dealing with aviation history, licensed private pilots, careers, mechanics, military, air traffic control, airline pilots and then climb aboard civilian aircraft. UPS Captain Terri Donner has been organizing this event for fifteen years at historic Bowman Field grounds. This is a totally “unmanned” experience as all presenters are qualified women in the field of aviation. This event coincides with Women of Aviation week festivities.
