FORT WORTH, Texas — American Airlines and Oklahoma State University-Tulsa (OSU) joined together to host the first Girls in Aviation Day this past weekend. Held at American Airlines Hangar 80, located at the airline’s Base Maintenance facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Women in Aviation International event focuses on introducing young girls to the exciting field of aviation, educating them on career opportunities, and bringing awareness to the many diverse fields within the industry — all areas American is keenly focused on.

“American Airlines has so many great opportunities to offer the next generation of aviation professionals,” said Stacey Brown, Director of Aircraft Overhaul at Tulsa. “It’s important we capture these young women early so they can see first-hand the many career opportunities that await them. The City of Tulsa has long played a critical role in American’s success, and we’re excited to connect with these impressive and aspiring aviation professionals from this important community.”
