I’m Emily, and I love flying.
I passed my PPL in April 2016, but have been flying in light aircraft as a passenger for almost 6 years as my husband’s addiction began a bit before mine.
Being female and relatively young, I don’t exactly fit the mould for the typical private pilot. Granted, this has its upsides – it’s certainly a good talking point, and I’ve NEVER had to queue for the loos at an aviation event!
Flying is amazing, and having been lucky enough to experience it myself, I’d love to think that it might be possible to plant the idea in someone else’s head by sharing those experiences.
So why did I create Women on the Wing?
Sharing the fun: Mostly I’ll be using this blog to post about flying experiences – photos, routes, recommendations for airfields and tips for exploring new places. Most of the flying we do is in the UK and Europe, but we’re heading further and further afield all the time so watch this space 🙂
Following progress with our kit-built plane: My husband and I have recently decided to build a Vans RV-14A kit aircraft in our garage. This is almost certainly an entirely bonkers idea, but I’m sure it will be fun to blog about.
Hearing from role models: I’m hoping to reach out to some amazing women in the world of aviation who can share their stories and perhaps inspire others to follow the same path.
Bear with me, I’m relatively new to aviation and to blogging! Any thoughts on content or suggestions for improvement would be very welcome 🙂
