  1. Trying to find this badge. Our girls completed the requirements by spending an afternoon with a group of the Charlotte 99’s, but can’t seem to find this badge through the Piedmont Council. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    1. The Aviation Badges are a series of council’s own badges put together by the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana in conjunction with Kentucky Bluegrass Ninety Nines. To purchase these badges, contact Tgsanders@att.net ($2.00 per badge includes shipping).
