Girl Scouts Taking To The Skies!

Last month we had a successful first session with our FlyGirls program, which was taught by Mary Schott, lifetime Girl Scout. Read a little more about who she is and her experience flying:

Mary Schott started taking flying lessons after school when she was 17. As a Girl Scout, she loved learning and experiencing new things, so when she started to think about what she wanted to do in life, flying seemed like the perfect adventure.  

The first flight was a blur- there was so much going on and so much to see, but after several lessons, it became easier and easier until flying became like second nature. In college, Mary studied aviation science-making straight A's-and started flight instructing. Teaching people how to fly was something she never dreamed of doing, but it was surprisingly fun to mentor someone through the world of aviation.  

Now, at 24, Mary flies all over the United States and sometimes to Canada, Mexico and the Bahamas too! She manages a flight school with full motion flight simulators and brand new airplanes, but she really loves getting to work with amazing people. Girl Scouts taught Mary that no matter what - friends and family are the most important thing in life and a fun job is just the icing on the cake!
