For the sixth year in a row, Women in Aviation International (WAI) received a $15,000 grant from the International Society of Transport Aircraft Training (ISTAT) Foundation, which funds educational programs that advance commercial aviation.
As in past years, this grant will be used to expand the distribution of Aviation for Girls magazine with the ISTAT Foundation identified as the sponsor of this year’s issue. With this grant, the number of copies printed will be distributed in both hard copy and digitally. The 2020 issue of Aviation for Girls will be available digitally to all Women in Aviation International members and any interested individuals on the WAI website.
Aviation for Girls will also be polybagged with the September/October issue of Aviation for Women so that all WAI members have a copy of the magazine to pass along to a daughter, granddaughter, niece, neighbor, or other girl in their lives.

Through this yearly magazine, girls ages 8 to 17 are introduced to careers in aviation and aerospace. Aviation for Girls is an integral part of Girls in Aviation Day. The print version of Aviation for Girls will be provided to thousands of kids enrolled for the new Aviation for Girls App, and all 6 issues of the magazine are available digitally on the Aviation for Girls App.
WAI Chapters, members, and supporters will celebrate Girls in Aviation Day on September 26, 2020 with the launch of the new Aviation for Girls App, which will be available on all app stores for free. Kids and their parents can enroll to participate at WAI’s website.
