Women and youth in aviation


Young people in Marin County enjoy several opportunities to participate in aviation activities. The airport observation area near the north gate on Airport Road provides a place to watch planes arrive and depart, to listen to the radio traffic, and spot airplanes near the airport. The Young Eagles program introduces young boys and girls to flying through volunteer flights hosted by the local chapter 1232 of the Experimental Aircraft Association. Local aviation businesses and the Gnoss Field Community Association have invited young people to tour the airport, airport businesses.


Women in aviation work and fly out of Gnoss Field. The Marin 99s represent women in Marin County that participate in the Ninety-Nines, the international organization of women pilots that promote advancement in aviation through education, scholarships and mutual support. Women at Gnoss Field work as flight instructors and aircraft mechanics at several of the airport businesses.
