30 middle school girls from the Big Island have the opportunity to soar at Pacific Aviation Museum’s Flight School for Girls. For the next three days, students from Ka'u High and Pahala Elementary School will learn the basics of flight. The girls will explore the history and technology of aviation and take to the skies using flight simulation software.

Museum Director of Education, Dr. Shauna Tonkin developed the program, specifically with young girls in mind.
