My Pilot Flight Training - Flying With Women Aviators

I am back to flight training to pursue my Private Pilot License (PPL).

So far only 7% of all the pilots are female. But the number of female aviators is rising across the flight school. I flew with 4 female pilots; Jibby, Juri, Tiara, and Leslie at Sling Pilot Academy. Each of them has an amazing story to share about their journey in aviation especially becoming a woman pilot, more so as a woman of colour and different background. They all made it with a lot of dedication and hard work.

At the end of the video, pilot students Jennifer and Erin shared with me what makes them join flight training to become pilots. They share their tips on how to progress in flight training and strongly encourage other women to try out.

For more info on flight training, visit:

Follow these talented female aviators:

    Women’s day coming up in 2 days. This video shows a trend of increasing numbers of female aviator in flight training and lot of them came from diverse background. The success of these female pilots are due to their determination, hard work and learning. They shared some great advice and encouragement for others to follow.

    Sam has decided to take his passion beyond flight vlogging to flight piloting. Sam claims his technical skills are under-matched compared to an average pilot, but he was unhindered by this and against all odds enrolled in a flying school. In this video, you will watch a concise documentary on how Sam morphed from being a passenger to a pilot. Don't stop chasing your dreams.

    I would have fired her as my flight instructor. She had her hand on the stick when he was flying. That would tell me that she had no confidence in his ability. When I was learning to fly my instructor had his hands on his knees from lesson one. Confident that he could get to the yolk if he needed to. This instilled confidence in me.

    For the black lady complaining that there are less women female pilots vs males and even less minorities, my question is, how come your people and your gender didn’t invent the plane. What’s your contribution to the advancement of airplane technology??! Maybe we should use affirmative action and give away pilot license to unqualified individuals on the basis of races and (all 53) genders.

    Hey Sam, listen I must say I’m seriously enjoying the channel and all of you reviews of all of the airlines,aircraft and airports. You continue to inspire a lot of people around the world especially during this very difficult time. I was unfortunately made redundant from Cathay Pacific last year when they got rid of a whole lot of people, hope to be back up there soon. Just a few things about your precious video with the 4 females, as a flight instructor myself I feel like you are making pretty solid progress however there are still a few things I would recommend to work on. Radio work still needs a bit of work but that will come over time and with more experience. Something I would definitely highlight is the talking during a take-off role and an approach especially when it’s got nothing to do with the flight, this for me is a big no no as it takes your situational awareness away from the flight and it’s a bad distraction, I would highly recommend focusing on the task at hand until you are established in the cruise, again just small things to keep in mind but the talking needs to change. I’m sure there are millions of instructors that reach out to you but if you ever want to clarify something or just ask, don’t hesitate. I am always willing to help a fellow aviator 👌🏼
