Flight Suits Designed for Women
06 Jun 2019 Amy McCullough

"The Defense Department is starting to design flight equipment with female aviators in mind. Women pilots in the Air Force and Navy gathered at JB Langley-Eustis, Va., on June 4 for a female fitment event, where officials took their measurements for uniforms, helmets, and masks. The data gathered will be used to design prototypes for female flight equipment, which has historically been based off of male measurements, according to a USAF release.

“When you go to a squadron to go to a fitment event, there’s usually only a couple of women, so to get a full spectrum of what is going to work for women aviators, we needed to bring them all together in one place,” said Lt. Col. Shelly Mendieta, plans and requirements officer.

Brig. Gen. Edward Vaughan, assistant to the director in the Air Force directorate of readiness and training, said the new equipment will improve pilots’ combat effectiveness.

“Women have been flying in the Air Force for a very long time,” Mendieta said. “We have made progress, but this is the first time in my 20-year career that we have had the kind of momentum that we have to get this right. We have the opportunity to get this right and we have to grab that and take it for all it’s worth.”"

Navy test pilot instructor earns Navy’s first-ever Army Broken Wing
07 Jun 2019 NavAirNews

"NAVAL AIR WARFARE CENTER AIRCRAFT DIVISION, PATUXENT RIVER, Md. - U.S. Naval Test Pilot School rotary instructor Barb Gordon was the Navy’s first to receive the Army’s Broken Wing Award during a ceremony June 6 in Patuxent River.

Highly regarded and rarely awarded, the Army gives the Broken Wing to aircrew who have minimized or prevented loss of life and aircraft through outstanding airmanship during inflight emergencies. Gordon’s award marked the first time the Army presented the Broken Wing outside of the service.

Col. John Jones, commanding officer of the Army’s Redstone Test Center (RTC) in Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, presided over the ceremony and presented the award to Gordon, a former naval lieutenant commander, who successfully recovered the UH-60L she was training a test pilot under instruction in October 5, 2016.

“Barb and Sylvia displayed that flight test can be done safely without negative outcome,” said Jones. “The Army appreciates your training, mentorship and expert airmanship.”..."
