Dec 7, 2020

Absolutely thrilled to announce I’ve joined the ranks of very illustrious Women in Aviation who speak on behalf of the Northern Lights Aero Foundation, a Canadian non-profit organization created to recognize the achievements of women in aviation and to encourage females of all ages to consider careers in aviation and aerospace.

Women CAN have careers in aviation.

Women CAN be charter pilots, airline pilots, civilian pilots, military pilots, helicopter pilots, floatplane pilots, Air Traffic Controllers, flight instructors, educators in aviation and engineering programs at university & college, and aircraft maintenance engineers.

Women CAN participate in flight operations, dispatching & ground control of aircraft, and aspire to management roles as owners or operators.
