A 180-degree view of the sunset 🌅 who likes winter flying ? ❄️ I have to admit that although it gets really cold I love winter landscape ⛄️ plus the performance gets better 💪 compared to the last summer 35-38 degrees Celsius 🔥 there are of course some things to remember, can anyone name some ? 🤔
She was determined to succeed but two things were then against her; her race and her gender.
Bessie Coleman, who was born on January 26, 1892, in Atlanta, Texas gained interest in aviation following the stories she heard and listened to about World War I pilots.
But, because she was black and a woman, it was difficult for her to find any school or individual in the U.S. willing to teach her how to fly. She subsequently went to France upon the advice of Robert Abbott, the publisher of the then largest African American newspaper, the Chicago Defender, where she earned her license.
Coleman just took seven months to learn how to fly at the school in France, where she was the only black student. Through money she had saved from working as a manicurist and manager of a parlour in a Texan restaurant, as well as, funding support from African-American businessman, Jesse Binga, Coleman was able to see through her education successfully.
She, however, received the shock of her life when a student died in the course of training at the school.
Nevertheless, Coleman persevered and eventually, the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale awarded her an international pilot licence in June 1921.
This made her the first African-American, male or female, to be given the pilot license from the Federation.
She came back to the United States right after, where she realized that she was almost a celebrity as the African-American press had already begun writing about her. She decided to ride on that fame to launch a one-woman airshow as a stunt pilot but she needed more training for that.
Still not finding any training facility willing to help her in the U.S., Coleman returned to Europe and acquired some training in Germany, the Netherlands as well as France.
With new skills, Coleman returned to the U.S. in 1922 and began performing aerial acrobatics stunts, parachuting, diving and others across the U.S. to the joy of teeming crowds.
She also lectured about flying, mainly to black people who did not know much about aviation. (Cont) ⬇️
Vähän lentoterveisiä väliin täältäki! Matkalentovaihe on kovassa käynnissä ja kierreltynä on jo Pori, Vaasa, Seinäjoki, Turku, Jyväskylä, Mikkeli, Lahti, Halli ja monen monta pienempää korpikenttää. Kuopiota oon monet kerrat jo yrittäny mutta kelien puolesta ei vain ole onnistunu. Lappiinki mielellään lentäisin, mutta nykysellä koneella matka kestää turhan liian kauan. Vaikka olishan se kyllä komeeta parkkeerata Tecnam Charterin viereen 😄🛩️#Crosscountryflying
Hello 🌎. My name is Anna. I am embarking on a new adventure: Busting my buns to become an airline pilot. 😁☺️
Years ago, I was a flight attendant at Skywest. I loved most days and enjoyed serving people. Crew, customer service, ramp, and mostly my passengers. (Although The 14-16hr irregular ops were difficult to enjoy ☺️😜). All-in-all, I loved my job. Putting on my dress & pumps, Dolling up for work and making it a mission to serve with compassion and a smile.
I remember the days when we could sit up front in the cockpit jumpseat on ferry flights. 😍 Takeoffs and landings were breathtaking. I Remember thinking, “ooohMy! This is AWEsome! But There is so much that goes on during these stages... so complex, I could never do it.” It took me years to realize flight is in my blood. I live and breathe it. And just like anything, radios and instruments ..and the entire process CAN be learned. Every single pilot out there, LEARNED it. And I can too.😊👍
I married a pilot. Have 3 kiddos. To tend to family life, I set aside my flight attendant career of nearly a decade and took up a more flexible passion, something I also lived and breathed ..and studied in college. Fine Art photography. @annagenevievenguyen
still love it and still active and well 😜👍 simply dying to get back into aviation. Being a mom has taught me many things I could not grasp then as an FA. Above all, it’s taught me to multi-task WELL and to prioritize. It’s taught me Enduring patience ..and the meaning of “fatigue” lol! Really though, I feel immensely fortunate to be able to embark on this journey. Very blessed. Tuong is my husband and my instructor. And though sometimes his instruction can drive me nuts, he makes sure I understand. ..and that’s a mark of a good teacher. So here’s to a new adventure! 🥂 🍻 🍷🦃🥃
wish me luck! ☺️❤️💛💙

There is so much about this photo I love. Kind of a weird thing to say I guess about yourself! Haha. Most of you may know but perhaps a lot of you don’t, I actually am a pilot! I try to fly as much as I can although it’s hard to get around to staying current but when I can fly it’s a complete blast!
My background is in aviation and my passion for that industry runs deep. Today is International Civil Aviation Day. It reminded me of why I love the aerospace industry and everything it encompasses.
This photo was taken when I just recently received my pilots license at the age of 21 and took my mom and aunt on their first solo airplane ride with me in Grand Forks North Dakota. 🖤 I’m pretty sure my aunt Malia actually took this photo.
The aerospace industry and just basic air travel brings people together from all over the world. It’s kind of amazing to think about how air travel whether people want to or not, are all united, in more times then not, peacefully through flight. Let’s celebrate this on International Civil Aviation Day! ✈️ #InternationalCivilAviationDay #TravelWithTai
... side note, I’m wondering where those super cute Fendi Aviators went?! 🤔Gosh apparently I had good taste in college! 😂🙌🏽
