Some of our favorite quotes
I literally woke up one day and said it would be cool to fly a helicopter. So I went online and googled, How to learn how to fly a helicopter.
How do you know when a pilot enters the room? They tell you!
I was forced to do all of the things I thought I couldn't do.
Less than 6% of pilots are women.
People are excited to see women in aviation.
If you see a couple around an airplane, please don't assume the man is the pilot.
I look for the day when we are no longer called women-pilots, we are just pilots.
I was compelled beyond any rational thought.
You have to own it and put it out there in the world; that's where the magic starts to happen.
