In March 2016 I had the honor of touring the Ninety-Nines museum with museum curator Denise Neil-Binion on assignment for Disciples of Flight. I was able to recap most of women in aviation’s history and tell my story of being a female in the aviation industry. This was one of my favorite articles to date and an absolute honor to write. I could have written much much more on this topic but left it at the highlights! Enjoy!
This article was featured on Disciples of Flight on August 8, 2016. It highlighted the air traffic control specialist bid that was open in August and explained changes to hiring laws for controllers over the past two years.

When I attended the WAI Conference in March, one of my favorite speakers was Lieutenant Heather “Lucky” Penney’s two keynote speeches on empowering women in the aviation industry and her experience on 9/11. Many people do not know that a squadron in Washington D.C. – Penney’s Squadron were sent to take down United Airlines Flight 93 – hijacked with terrorists – with no active missiles on board their F-16’s. Penney was essentially on a kamikaze mission and spoke about her willingness to not return home to her family that night because of her commitment to serving our country.
Air & Space Magazine had sent me to the Conference to cover Penney’s speeches and another story that may be published in the future. It was the most moving story I have done thus far. There were many people in the room with tears in their eyes as she told her story – just one of million’s of stories from that Tuesday morning. It was a very touching story and one that I hope everyone gets to hear in full one day. My article touches on the very basics of her speech and what she did that morning – what she was willing to sacrifice. I hope that you’ll take the time to read this story and understand and appreciate what Penney was willing to do that day.
