Female Pilots? - swashplate - 03-28-2018

Are there any ladies flying the Mosquito in any capacity?  I have talked to SEVERAL gents about flying skeeters but there have been, (to the best of my knowledge), no ladies flying these machines?

Unfortunately not one so far. That's surprised me a little as well as I expected at least one or two by now after selling 430 machines. Speaks to the difference between the male and female psyche I guess.

Many women have fear of heights probably.

You may be right. Although my wife loves to fly, she just doesn’t have any interest to “ pilot” the plane. With that said, she is planning to take the he ‘pinch hitter” course with our aircraft.

three or four women training at my helo flight school. However, I suspect they are more interested in flying jobs, rather than just for fun.
