    Don't have a youtube account, and I wish that I had a supercub so I could use the name. Maybe I'll win the one they are giving away, except that I don't have an extra $50 for the ticket.

    Default Great Video, Cool Women

    Wow, that is a great video and Those Are Some Women in my opinion

    Recently had a woman at controls on a commercial flt from Anc to Homer I thnk it was Servant air or something, I got to sit up front and watch her all the way and for some reason I felt like "This girl has probably really got her act together to be here"

    by my experience Women are usually as tight or tighter than a lot of men in situations like that

    Those girls are Dialed In

    We used to have a gal, bush pilot in Ketchikan in the 70's and maybe into the 80's. Dixie Jewitt, she was a great, safe pilot and I flew with her many times.
    Rep for Dixie!

    My mother was the pilot in the family growing up. I sat in the right seat from the age of seven or so and we covered a lot of the state each summer. That woman can certainly control that airplane better than I can, and I'm sure the same is true of many women pilots.

    Default They've moved up front

    A couple years back I was on an Alaska Airlines flight, and both the Capt. and F.O. were women. The strange part is all three flight attendants were men. Times are a changing.

    headoutdaplane, did you do the filming / video work of your fellow (sister) employees?
    If so good job on not having the plexi windscreen pull itself into focus. Plus it was pretty steady... I need to find somebody with a good video recorder to help me do some local float-training video work. My book is good but can only go so far.

    BTW...

    My three daughters fly. One son refuses, yet he pilots a 1,000 ft long cargo ship. The other son works on helos, but has no desire to fly them... Yep the world is different.

    See what happens when you give 'em the vote?
    Some guy came in last year and wanted to make a reality show about the girls, so he did all the filming. The girls are kinda embarrassed about the video, so of course I have to spread it as much as possible.

    Update: Steph was flying supplies from Santiago, D.R. into Jacmel, and Cap Haitia. When it was time for her to go, they asked her to help escort some pre-earthquake orphans (completely legal, all forms filled out and signed by the PM) from Cap to Port. The US embassy was late and a crowd of Haitians started accusing them of child trafficking and saying they were gonna take the children (Good luck Mr. Haitian, Steph ain't to be messed with when she is pissed). I got a call from her from a Haitian jail (yeah, all the jokes came out, soap on a rope, started humming Tony Orlando and Dawn, how to make a shank etc). Then CNN, congressmen, and Senators, ambassador and Prime Minister got involved. Long story short (too late) she is on her way home, kids with new parents. Another one of the girls in the flying video is doing the Santiago/Cap/Jacmel shuttles this week.

    Thumbs up Wow!

    Thanks for sharing that arcticle. What a great group of women standing up against a not so great situation. Really shows some great strength and integrity by everyone involved. Hope those kids all end up in solid loving homes where they will get chances in life they never would have had otherwise. Every child at least deserves a chance, unfortunately not all of them get one. Really makes me feel lucky i grew up the way i did. It makes me feel pretty stupid when i take for granted what i have and whine about the little things.

    Uncle Sam sent me to Haiti twice.
    As he has been doing for over 100 years with other troops and civilian groups.
    You could not pay me enough to go back.

    Thanks for sharing the video of your friends. It's really encouraging. Give me about six more months and I'll be a "chick" pilot! Flew my first plane at 17 but wasn't able to follow through until now. Can't wait!
