Join us to celebrate the significance of International Women's Day - 8th March 2020.
Women at FTA
We recently caught up with FTA Graduate, Hannah to discuss her pilot training and ask her what does it mean to be a female pilot:
"I must confess I don’t really think about it. I don’t see myself as a ‘female pilot’ just a pilot. I’m so proud that myself and my male training colleagues have completed the course and been successful. I know the hard work that each and every student has put in. It’s about dedication and passion, not gender".
At FTA, we are proud to have both wonderful female and male pilots representing us and going on to work for their dream airlines. The airlines are doing their part in promoting women in aviation. Last year, EasyJet announced a target of 20% of new pilots being female by 2020, after successfully having achieved a milestone of 15%.
Hopefully this article, and the students we interviewed have inspired you today. For more interesting stories, please visit our pilot and cadet stories page.
