Turbine Training Center Blog for Cessna 208 Caravan & Beechcraft King Air pilots
Do you remember Amelia Earhart? And the tragedy that beset her? She had so many Aviatrix “firsts” that you might think there are no “Firsts” left for a lady pilot. In fact, you might think there are no “Firsts” left for anyone. Yet, such is not the case in either instance. For example, Julie Wong, a Palm Beach-based flight instructor just announced that she is going to attempt to be the first Chinese woman to solo around-the-world, which will also make her the first Chinese woman to circumnavigate the world in an aircraft. As a result, AVIATION FIRSTS AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING is something that might very well be possible for YOU!!!
“According to Wong,” Jason Wolcott, Vice President of TURBINE TRAINING in Manhattan, Kansas, shared, intrigue heavy in his voice, “she never really thought about the flight until 2011 when she met Chen Wei, the first Chinese man to fly around-the-world.”
“Yeah,” Dale Wolcott, TURBINE TRAINING’s President offered, “she said she remembered thinking, ‘I could do that.’ At first,” he continued, “she said it was just a fleeting thought, but the more she pondered the idea the more she began to realize she actually could do it, and about a year ago she began planning to make the trip.”
Now, you may wonder why AVIATION FIRSTS AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING and Julie Wong is truly germane to you. The answer is actually simple enough – if you are, or become, a General Aviation pilot, there may be a whole world of “firsts” just waiting for you to discover them. It might be based on your age; your gender; your experience (or lack thereof); your nationality or a host of other traits that might be particular to you (perhaps you could be the first redhead to fly non-stop from Minneapolis to St. Paul without re-fueling!) Seriously, though, the beginning of any “Aviation First” is to receive proper Aviation Training!
