« My father is a helicopter pilot, so I grew up with a hidden love for helicopters. Never in a million years did I dream I would ever actually become a pilot though. I planned to follow my own route after high school. I went to college and received a B.S. in Mathematics. Upon graduation, I landed a job, and was surrounded by aviation once again.
Before trying to escape the aviation industry once and for all, my father suggested I try a discovery flight. That 30 minutes changed my life forever. I’ve never felt passion like this before. I’ve never been so driven either. From then on, I knew my purpose in life was to fly for a living.
Da Vinci once said “Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” - I’ve never related to anything more »
Who agrees ? Thank you @jordilayne for sharing your story with me and the rest of this community ! I hope it makes you guys know each other a little more and inspire even more ladies to conquer the skies (and listen to their dads in that case : he obviously knew better!)
