Inaugural Blog Post
I married into a family of pilots. My husband's eldest brother holds a Commercial Pilot's License (CPL) and a helicopter license, his middle brother is a Licensed Aircraft Mechanical Engineer and holds a Private Pilot's License (PPL), and his dad is an ex-PPL who now holds a Microlight License with an "ATO" status instructor rating. My husband also holds a Microlight License with an instructor rating and he's a current PPL student.
At some early point in our relationship, I went flying with my husband and thought it didn't seem that difficult. Perhaps it was then that I made up my mind about someday holding my own pilot's license despite knowing that none of the other women in the family had one. Now a couple of years on from that first flight, I'm finally motivated towards getting my PPL.
I intend for this blog to be a loose representation of my journey from normal mum to Angelina Jolie status (she's a PPL if you didn't know). I hope you'll read along and comment...encouragement, criticism, links to your own woman in aviation blogs or websites; it's all welcome here!
PS - If you really want it, that choice airplane spoon and matching runway bib with LED landing lights is available here.
