Podcast: Celebrating Women’s History Month

March 29, 2021

Throughout March, NBAA has spotlighted several exemplary female aviation pioneers in recognition of Women’s History Month. Today, four distinguished aviation professionals discuss the role that women have played in our nation’s aviation history and how to bring the next generation of women into the industry. “The ‘see it, be it’ factor is so important,” said Dr. Becky Lutte with the University of Nebraska – Omaha Aviation Institute. “The more women that we get into aviation, the more young people coming into aviation will be able to see themselves in the industry.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Dorothy Cochrane, general aviation curator, National Air & Space Museum
  • Wendi Gavigan, CAM, vice president, manager of flight operations, Citigroup Aviation
  • Becky Lutte, PhD, associate professor, University of Nebraska – Omaha Aviation Institute
  • Allison McKay, CEO, Women in Aviation International
