The day finally arrived. Fly Day! 17 girls, and tons of community volunteers, gathered at the Punta Gorda EAA 565 Building at Punta Gorda Airport. We had everything from simulators to drones to crafts for the students to learn from. We also had an amazing guest speaker Sydney, a former Certified Flight Instructor at Aeroguard Flight Training Center. Our two amazing pilots were Bob DiCello and Terry Carbonell, both incredible and generous pilots.
The girls had such a blast, and we even got one signed up for her Student Pilot’s Certificate and joining as a member of the Paradise Coast Ninety Nines. A huge success, considering most of the girls were just too young to begin flight training officially.
We want to thank Paradise Coast Ninety Nines and EAA Chapter 565 for generously volunteering their time and facilities to help with this program.
