Women are taking to the skies at Reid-Hillview! Ryann flew her solo flight in a taildragger around the pattern for 31R with instructor Logan watching and listening from below. Congrats to them both. We are so exciting to see this surge in female pilots. Go aviatrices!
“It didn’t occur to me that I could be a pilot until two years ago, after I watched a talk given by Space Shuttle astronaut Rhea Seddon. She mentioned getting her private license in college and it was the first time I realized I could do the same thing. I came to Aerodynamic late last year knowing absolutely nothing about aviation. The instructors and staff have been nothing short of amazing in helping me learn and grow as an aviator. Looking forward to finishing my private license and maybe someday teaching others how to fly taildraggers” ~Ryann
