Koko just finished her training and has her type rating! Congratulations!

"Thank you so much for everything! I am officially a CFI *:) happy I am so happy! I will get you a copy of my certificate as soon as possible for your records. I am waiting to hear from Rhonda from The Flight School, on whether there was any money left over from the scholarship or if I owe money. If there is money left over I will let you know so that it can be returned to the organization for another candidate next year. I really appreciate your assistance with the entire process and I am so excited/nervous for this next step in my career."

AIR NEW ZEALAND

 

 

Eighty years ago, Jean Batten broke a world record with the first solo flight from England to New Zealand. It took 11 days to make the record-breaking trip.

 

This week (10/21/2016), Air New Zealand celebrated the heroic solo journey taken by New Zealand's greatest aviator with an all-female flight crew flying from London to Auckland.

Quotes from Liz Jennings Clark in Travel Boom article:

 
 

NEW CAPTAINS!


Congratulations to
three women pilots who have recently upgraded to Captain!

Captain Deborah Hecker (American Airlines), who is also a chief pilot!
Captain Aileen Marie (Atlas Air), who has achieved her lifelong dream of left seat on the mighty 747!
Captain Betsy Jordan Donovan (XOJET)—you deserved this promotion long ago!

These ladies have strived for 15 to 20 years to advance as pilots while also pulling many other ladies up with them. Each one is a tremendous role model as pilot and leader in aviation.

CONGRATULATIONS, CAPTAINS!

American Airlines Announces Paid Maternity Leave


http://thepointsguy.com/2017/01/american-airlines-paid-maternity/


If you run across an American Airlines employee with an extra spring to his or her step, it might be because of the carrier's new maternity policy. Effective March 1, 2017, many AA employees will receive “up to 10 weeks of fully paid time off to recover from pregnancy and delivery” and/or “up to $4,000 in financial support and positive space travel related to adoptions.” This covers both union and nonunion employees.

Delta Air Lines followed suit, announcing six weeks of paid time off after birth, but not for women pilots, who are union employees.



An article in August of last year highlighted the issues in the cockpit of being a new mom.
This is not just a female issue, it is a family issue that our country needs to address.

DON'T FLY TIRED


We all know better than to fly tired... but long haul flights and red eye flying are realities.
Until airlines get better at managing schedules, pilots will continue to monitor their own performance and find methods that work for them.
Hopefully our unions and airlines will work with us to find solutions for our fatigue issues.
