Outreach Programs

GRoW participants with SOS pilots

Overview

Girls Rock Wings (GRoW) is our annual one-day  aviation/STEM outreach program where we expose girls of color between the ages of 10-18 years of age to the field of aviation. They will have a discovery flight with a Certified Flight  Instructor (CFI) who is a woman of color; tour an air
traffic control tower; develop a flight plan and fly that flight plan in a simulator; and tour a static display. In 2018 and 2019, our GRoW event was held in Houston, TX at the Lone Star Flight Museum. We are currently in the planning phase to host a GRoW in South Florida in November of 2021 and in Houston, Texas in the spring of 2022. To date, we have exposed over 100 girls to the field of aviation through our GRoW outreach.
