Sideline Pass is thrilled to team up with The Black Hawk Flight Foundation and the licensed female pilots of the Ninety Nines to offer our mentees a unique day of learning about aviation and the scholarship opportunities in that field.
We will be travelling to Diamondhead, MS where our girls will receive ground school lessons, enjoy actual planes rides to experience the thrill of flying first-hand and hear from the Ninety-Nines about what it takes to be a successful female in the industry. Information on aviation scholarships will also be provided for our girls who are interested in becoming pilots. A big part of Sideline Pass’ mission is to empower young women to dream big, then provide them with the necessary tools to achieve those dreams.
Sideline Pass is a non-profit organization headquartered in New Orleans, dedicated to mentoring and empowering young women to educate themselves and go on to enjoy successful careers. While Sideline Pass works with a variety of groups, the foundation focuses its efforts on female athletes, at-risk females, and those in foster care.
The Blackhawk Flight Foundation is a nonprofit organization that aims to educate the public on aviation and other aeronautical studies, as well as to provide guidance, mentoring, and scholarship to those who are less able.
The Ninety-Nines are an international group of licensed female pilots in 44 countries. Numbering more than a thousand professionals, the Ninety Nines are dedicated to sharing their passion for flying with others. They offer aviation classes for adults and STEM classes for youth to stimulate interest in the aviation field.
