Women in Wyoming: Lori Olson

Every woman who has let self-doubt obstruct her desire to become a pilot, and every person who has let fear or anxiety keep them from achieving their goals, will be inspired by this personal story and podcast. Many thanks to Lori Olson, Director of the Upton Municipal Airport, backcountry pilot & rural airstrip advocate, for sharing her story.

Lori writes “Women In Wyoming is a great project and Lindsay Linton-Buk does a wonderful job. Lindsay featured my story of how I started flying on one of her podcasts and in a chapter called ‘Filling the Void’. I think it’s something that many women can relate to as they struggle to find a place where they belong. The sky is that place for me.”
