    Way to go! Studies have shown that women make better pilots anyway, something to do with hand/eye co-ordination. I would fly with you any day!

  2. Just wanted to make one clarification: There are plenty of trans pilots, but they all have done all that extra testing because they didn’t have the resources to fight the FFA. I know someone who is a pilot with a major airline. She said she didn’t question the FFA. As she put it “They said ‘Jump!’ and I said ‘how high?’ “.

    I know another aviation professional who did try to fight the FFA, but her state senator (John Kerry) refused to help her.

    Thank you Tamsym for eliminating another barrier to equality!

  3. Outstanding, fly high honey!

  5. We need heroines like this to knock down the barriers trans people face on a daily basis.
