Five members of the 99s generously shared their flying careers and experiences with 24 eager Girl Scouts at the Laguna Beach Girl Scout House last month.

The association of women pilots supports aviation through education and scholarship.

The girls ages 11 to 15 from Cadette Troops 2165, 402 and 2324 were inspired by personal stories of each woman’s passion for flight and the varied paths they have taken with aviation as a career, volunteer or personal pursuit.

The scouts are working towards their S.T.E.M. (science-technology-engineering-math) merit badge. The troops plan a future outing to the Chino Planes of Fame Airshow and to learn about the Civil Air Patrol, the civilian auxiliary to the U.S. Air Force.
