8 famous female aviators: Fabulous flying women

8 famous female aviators: Fabulous flying women | piloting | Scoop.it
Earlier this summer, the worlds of aviation and space exploration lost a legend when the first American woman to fly in space, Sally Ride, succumbed to pancreatic cancer at the age of 61. Ever since Ride went into orbit aboard the Challenger in 1983, the trailblazing astronaut has inspired countless number of young women to take flight and follow their dreams by pursuing careers in aviation and astronautics.



Interestingly enough, just days before Ride’s death, veteran pilot Liu Yang, 33, became the first Chinese woman to enter space while aboard spacecraft Shenzhou 9 on a 13-day mission.



In honor of Ride and Yang, we’ve rounded up eight other pioneering aviators and astronauts, contemporary and historic who have shattered flight records and stereotypes — and in some cases, the sound barrier — and changed the course of history in the process.



We’ve come a long way since 19-year-old Aida de Acosta, much to the chagrin of her horrified parents, hopped into a dirigible in Paris and became the first woman to fly solo in a powered aircraft in 1903. (Text: Matt Hickman)

Fact and Fallacy of the Looming “Pilot Shortage”

Fact and Fallacy of the Looming “Pilot Shortage” | piloting | Scoop.it
emma zigarovich's insight:

the piloting industry is facing a shortage of pilots. there is not enough people coming in that are qualified to do the jobs in the major airlines and also in other aspects of piloting. many of the older pilots are nearing retirement and there are not enough qualified people to come in to replace them. many of the jobs are in the regional industry. however, the regional industry is lower in pay and once you join that industry, you usually are in it for your entire career. it is extremely expensive to receive the piloting instruction necessary to become qualified for the major industry of the the airlines. the other option is to go military for the training. They will pay for the training, and they may also help with college pay. you will be committed to the military for a time period.  you also could make a military career out of it.
