Disciples of Flight, Equality

The 99’s Museum & Gender Inequality

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!

My Journey

I’m Back!!

…From an extended and unexpected break!!

For my followers that were around back in the spring, you may have noticed that I took about a half year break from blogging and writing. Unfortunately, when I started my job with the FAA back in June, I was advised to stop writing because of the potential conflict of interest… I was disheartened that I couldn’t keep up with my favorite hobby. But, it was also a blessing in disguise. I was able to really focus on my training at the FAA Air Traffic Academy and managed to graduate top of my training class. I’m now training to be an en route controller at Fort Worth ARTCC (air route traffic control center).

As of today, however, I have received clearance (pun intended) to start writing again!  I will likely stray away from topics directly related to my job, but I’ll still be writing on aviation topics that spark my interest.  I recently purchased a new DSLR camera & I live right by DFW airport – I’m certain that there will be some good plane-watching shots coming up soon. Standby for more!

I’m so excited to be back in the game…What should I write about first? What’s hot right now? Anything you want to know more about? Do you know of any up-in-coming publications that could use an aviation expert? What have I missed in my 7-month leave of absence?

I’m so happy to be back. Thanks to everyone that stuck around during my radio silence. I can’t wait to be back writing for you guys again very very soon!

Till next time!! xoxo,

Chrissi

Mathematicians are now Air Safety Investigators

Apparently my degree in aviation has no weight anymore – now mathematicians can tell us definitively what happens to our missing planes.

I love it!

Thank You, Lieutenant Penney

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.
