International Women in Aviation Conference—Dallas, Texas

A high-powered group of women gathered in Dallas, Texas March 8-10 for the 23rd Annual International Women in Aviation Conference. Civilian and military pilots, mechanics, air traffic controllers, engineers, and more filled the Hilton Anatole with an incredible energy and camaraderie. I was fortunate to be a part of the Author’s Table for my book Flight Emergency, which was an honor and a lot of fun!
