Juliette Gordon Low experienced her first flight eight years after the Wright brothers successfully flew the Wright Flyer I in 1903. The thrilling experience lead Juliette to introduce a Girl Scouts Aviation badge to the Girl Scouts Handbook.
Keeping with that tradition, on April 14, 2018, the Colorado 99s (an organization of all female pilots) is hosting Aviation Patch Day. This program is for Girl Scout Cadettes and Seniors interested in aviation-related activities. These include making and racing various paper airplanes, learning the language of aviation, understanding more about weather, hearing the history of aviation, and even sitting in the cockpit of an airplane.
