Female aviators are equal to their male counterparts, right?

Female aviators are equal to their male counterparts, right?

Thank heaven it’s 2018 and women aviators are finally considered equal partners with their male counterparts. Hmmm, but are they really? Opportunities for women who choose aviation as a career have never been better. Jobs abound for pilots but also for dispatchers, air traffic controllers, mechanics, avionics technicians, and more. Female pilots may be just 7% of the pilot population but women with gumption, perseverance, and determination will make their mark and join the ranks of career female aviators. Hard work, smarts and a love for ... Read More »

Who is Aline Rhonie?

Who is Aline Rhonie?

Take a look at the following photo and admit you’re intrigued, curious, even a little fascinated by what you see. I don’t believe I’ve seen such a fantastic, classic photo of a woman posed with an airplane that I haven’t come across a dozen times on the internet, and I know zero about. I have a stash of photos of famous women with gorgeous airplanes and yet, a friend sends me this incredible image and I’m completely clueless. Who is she? Does she have a personal connection to the Luscombe ‘Phantom’ R... Read More »
