RFT 034: Airline Pilot/Author Erika Armstrong

June 27, 2016

Erika Armstrong accidentally entered aviation by working a desk at a local FBO to support herself in college. And THEN she became addicted to aviation. She worked her way up through the ranks, flying charters and Red Cross blood transport flights, and eventually ended up in the left seat of a B-727. Along the way, she encountered gender bias and sexual harassment, but she prevailed. She now writes aviation columns for numerous publications.

Her book A Chick In The Cockpit is available on her website and on Amazon.
