Girl Scouts and Aviation

Raise your hand if Girl Scout Cookie season is your favorite season. At Independent Helicopters we love hosting the Girl Scouts to teach them all about what we do, how the business has grown, and all of the potential they have to do great things not only within the Girl Scout program, but beyond! As a certified Woman Owned Business, cultivating a passion in young girls is one of the most rewarding things for us. They might not know it yet, but their potential is literally limitless. The girls are always so eager and challenge us by asking some really great questions. Girl Scout days are always a nice break from our usual day-to-day, and it’s so fun to share what we love. Lucy gets a really kick out of it, too! We’re looking forward to hosting some more troops in the coming months, and getting the Boy Scouts involved as well!
