I have known a few girls who tried RC flying... For a few years our club was holding an annual "training day" for the local Girl Scouts and some of those girls took up the hobby for a while... then they got driver's licences.

Similar results from the Cub Scouts/Boy Scouts... those that took up the hobby all disappeared when they got driver's licences.

The girls tended to learn faster... because they paid attention to instruction better. (didn't think they already knew how to do it)

Maybe some of those girls (and guys) will come back to flying later. Hobbies tend to get set aside in favor of dating, college, work...

I don't have the date, but it is right after Joe Nall Week. Starts on a Thursday and runs to Sunday. Very good meet to attend and learn a lot.
