The future really is female and we are excited to share the news that we have a trainee pilot at Creston – Grade 11 learner Claudia Monin.
We spoke to Claudia about her passion for flying FAST planes and her dreams and ambitions for her future.
Claudia takes lessons in the beautiful Sling 2 at the World of Wings Flight School in Craigieburn, where she’s the only female student, and hopes to put in enough solo hours by the end of December to attain her Student pilot’s licence.
She spends weekends taking lessons with her instructor (the owner of the plane), practising circuits and touch-and-go landings.
Claudia is planning to fly military aircraft after school, and wants to join the New Zealand Air Force (as she holds NZ citizenship).
