Swedish Female Fighter Pilot trainee Veronica Novak training to fly Jas 39 Gripen

Veronica Novak -- en pionjär i luften
LINKÖPING Först drömde hon om att bli konsertpianist. Men som 13-åring ville hon bli flygare. Drygt tio år senare är Veronica Novak på väg att bli Sveriges första kvinnliga Jas-pilot.
http://www.corren.se/nyheter/veronica-novak-en-pionjar-i-luften-4619566.aspx
I utkanten av den stora flygplatsen Malmen ligger ett grönt oansenligt tvåvåningshus. En trappa upp i en sal med nakna lysrör råder stillhet. På väggarna hänger inglasade bilder på Jas 39 Gripen och modeller av skolflygplanet SK 60. En välvuxen krukväxt kämpar med att sprida hemtrevnad.
Det är förmiddag och teorilektion på flygskolan.
Blivande stridspiloter lär sig hur is på planet påverkar flygegenskaperna. En i gänget med gröna overaller har långt mörkt hår uppsatt med en tofs i nacken.
Kvinnan från Järfälla är en av åtta som klarat av att passera nålsögat till den eftertraktade flygutbildningen.
Efter hårdra tester valdes hon och de andra i klassen ut till en utbildning som efter tre till fyra år gör dem till fullfjädrade Jas-piloter.
-- Pilot har varit en dröm sedan jag var 13. Varför vet jag inte. Det kan hänga ihop med att min pappa ville bli pilot när han var ung, men han hade för dålig syn.
Under tonåren tog Veronica Novak både certifikat för segelflyg och för motorflygplan. Vägen till flygskolan gick via naturvetenskaplig linje på gymnasiet, lumpen i ett år som flygmekaniker och militärhögskolan.
Hon var på väg hem från det tillfälliga jobbet som brevbärare när hon fick besked att hon var uttagen.
-- Det tog en stund innan jag fattade att det var sant.
Stämningen på flygskolan är avspänd och trygg, fjärran från en strikt hierarkisk miljö. Lärarna ser som sin uppgift att lotsa eleven genom den kostsamma utbildningen. De visar varje övning, eleverna flyger och efteråt diskuterar de hur det gick.
Endast de bästa duger
Det är en markant skillnad från utbildningar i till exempel Tyskland och USA. Där tas fler elever in än vad som behövs. En stor del sållas bort under utbildningen.
Något som chefen för grundutbildningen, Per Amelin, inte ger mycket för:
-- I USA sätter lärarna upp en dödskalle på väggen för varje elev som de fockat. Ett sådant system har vi inte råd att ha i Sverige. Här plockar vi från början ut de som är bäst lämpade för att bli piloter, säger han.
Teori varvas under det första året med 150 flygtimmar. I juni får eleverna de eftertraktade guldvingarna, ett märke att sätta på bröstet som bevis på att de genomgått grundutbildningen.
I väntan på nya lokaler och bostäder för flygeleverna på Malmen bor de tillfälligt på vandrarhem och i lägenheter runt om i Linköping.
När utbildningen är klar -- efter två år i Linköping och ett vid Jas-flottiljen F7 Såtenäs i Lidköping -- placeras Veronica som stridspilot vid flygbasen F21 i Luleå under tio år. Det blir långt till pojkvännen i Göteborg, också han militär.
-- Bara att hoppas att han kan flytta med, säger hon.
I det framtida svenska försvaret ingår uppdrag i utlandet. Något svenska piloter måste ställa upp på.
-- Jag har tänkt mycket på det. Om vi går ut på internationella uppdrag ser jag inte det som ett problem, säger Veronica.
En i gänget
Ärtsoppan i värnpliktsmatsalen är full med matiga små fläsktärningar. Pannkakor med jordgubbssylt och en sallad slinker ned innan genomgången inför eftermiddagens två flygpass.
Flyguniformen med g-byxorna och de knähöga kängorna åker på. Byxorna har inbyggda blåsor som fylls när kroppen utsätts för kraftig acceleration. Det skapar ett tryck över benen för att förhindra att blod samlas i nedre delen av kroppen så piloten tappar medvetandet.
Trots att det är sommarvarmt ute är långkalsonger och underställ ett måste.
Veronica har sitt klädskåp bland männen. Men duschar i ett rum bredvid.
-- Jag vill vara en i gänget. Det känns som det skulle bli mer isolerat om jag stack i väg till ett eget omklädningsrum.
När saknaden efter tjejkompisar blir för stark ringer hon sin bästa kompis Marie-Therese i Göteborg.
-- Ibland önskar jag att det fanns några fler tjejer här, för det är klart att det ibland blir lite väl mycket killsnack.
-- Men hittills har det inte varit några egentliga problem med att vara ensam tjej. Jag har aldrig mött de som är negativa men jag kan tänka mig att det var värre för ett tiotal år sedan när kvinnor i flygvapnet var ganska nytt.
Prick klockan 12 är det samling. Det sprakar till och en kvinnoröst ljuder i internteven. Meteorologerna på Malmen informerar om flygvädret som blir klart. Sikten god med bara enstaka cirrusmoln.
Eleverna ska träna på att flyga i så kallad rote. En lärare flyger det ena planet och en elev det andra. Över en bestämd punkt ska de få kontakt och träna på att följa efter varandra.
Veronica granskar flygkartan. På väggen bakom henne sitter en almanacka från Slitz med en lättklädd Linda Rosing bredvid en brandman med bar överkropp.
Tyst maskin
Veronica bestämmer möte i luften ovanför en liten sjö vid Hjo i Västergötland. Därefter tränar de över Vättern innan det blir dags att flyga hem.
Hon knäpper sin uppblåsbara flytväst runt magen och sätter på flyghjälmen. På plattan vid hangarerna står de ombyggda skolflygplanen SK 60 på rad. Emblemet med de tre gula kronorna mot blå botten och gul ring omkring pryder sidorna.
Allt inom flyget är ännu inte anpassat för kvinnor. Som till exempel syrgasmasken som sitter ihop med hjälmen:
-- Den är egentligen för stor för mig men det finns inga mindre. Masken får inte läcka och det var ett pyssel att få till den, klippa lite här klippa lite där. Smågrejer, men det funkar.
Tillsammans med en tekniker synar hon planet och kontrollerar att allt är som det ska. Flygteknikerna kommer numera från ett civilt företag, efter kritik mot försvarsmakten som tidigare använt värnpliktiga till så kallad grå arbetskraft.
13.05 drar första motorn igång i hennes SK 60 med ett högfrekvent ljud, därefter andra. Hon får tummen upp från teknikern och rullar sakta iväg längs en gul linje som leder fram till start- och landningsbanan. Flygbränslet från de varma motorerna luktar mjukt och sötaktig.
Jas 39 Gripen lyfter en bit bort lastad med teknik från Försvarets materielverk på andra sidan flygfältet. Ljudet från jetmotorn är starkt och hårt.
Veronicas skolflygplan är som en viskning i jämförelse. När hon och hennes kamrater lyft hörs åter fågelkvitter från skogsdungen bredvid.
Fler kvinnor
Utbildningschefen Per Amelin följer hennes plan med blicken.
-- Jag tänker inte så mycket på att vi har en kvinna i gruppen. Hon smälter bra in. Men det är klart att hon kan känna sig ensam emellanåt och saknar en tjejkompis. Speciellt när hon inte vill spela innebandy för femtielfte gången i rad eller snacka bilar.
Med hjälp av rekrytering försöker försvaret få kvinnor att inse att det finns en framtid i det hårt mansdominerade pilotyrket. Men få söker och få klarar att uppfylla måtten.
En stridspilot måste ha vissa mått för att kunna sköta reglage och pedaler och en viss vikt för att katapultstolen ska fungera på rätt sätt.
-- Det är olyckligt att det inte är fler kvinnor i kåren. Tyvärr har vi inte så många att välja på, säger Per Amelin.
Veronica landar svettig efter 50 minuter.
-- Det låter inte som så lång tid, men det är krävande att vara koncentrerad och på helspänn hela tiden.
Hon funderar på om hon varit rädd någon gång.
-- Inte i luften. Jag kopplar bort allt och fokuserar på det som ska göras. Men så fort det händer en ovan situation tänker jag till extra mycket.
Veronica berättar om en övning i navigation som hon fick avbryta för några månader sedan när hon stötte på dåligt väder.
-- Jag var inte beredd och det blev ett stressmoment. På väderbriefingen hade de sagt att molnkanten skulle vara längre österut.
Efter flygpasset får Veronica snabb återkoppling av sin flyglärare och tankar kroppen med en banan och två stora glas vatten.
Ophra Winfrey brusar i bakgrunden på teven i kafferummet, i tidningsstället samsas glansiga flygmagasin med jakttidningar.
-- Inte så många Vecko-Revyn och tjejtidningar här, kommenterar hon på väg ut till nästa flygpass.

Swedish Female Fighter Pilot trainee Veronica Novak training to fly Jas 39 Gripen
Dagen då flygarna fick vingar
LINKÖPING På onsdagen fick den första kullen av elever på flygskolan på Malmen vingar.- Du kommer att upptäcka att det är i flygvapnet du får dina bästa vänner och dina vänner för livet, sade flygveteranen Erik Ersbacken som fick sina vingar för 60 år sedan, till nya flygvapenpiloten Veronica Novak.
http://www.corren.se/nyheter/dagen-da-flygarna-fick-vingar-4634929.aspx
Några saker förenade alla flygare som samlats på SK60-plattan vid flygskolan. Alla kom ihåg den dag de fick sina vingar.
Alla kom ihåg hur man dagen före sett till att göra hål i uniformen så att man snabbt kunde sätta på sig sina märken.
- Själv stod jag som Er 29 juni 1978, sade flygvapeninspektören Andersson.
- Då hade jag inte en tanke på att jag skulle stå där jag gör i dag.
Jan Andersson medgav att han varit lite orolig för etableringen av flygskolan på Malmen.
- Men jag oroade mig i onödan.
Ett 20-tal veteraner
Ett 20-tal äldre män tittade inte utan viss nostalgi på ceremonin.
Ulf Björkman, 80, och Sven-Erik Ersbacken, 86, mindes sin examensdag som om det vore i går.
- Det var på Ljungbyhed för exakt 60 år sedan och vi var den största kullen flygare dittills, 119 stycken, berättade Ulf Björkman.
De har decimerats med nästan 20 procent på grund av haverier, men även åldern har tagit många.
- Den tidens flygsäkerhet var ju en helt annan, sade Sven-Erik Ersbacken.
Han minns med stor förtjusning de flera hundra timmar han tillbringade i det klassiska stridsplanet Mustang.
Veronica Novak, den andra kvinnan som genomgått grundläggande flygförarutbildning i flygvapnet, berättade, med färskt "flygförarmärke m/36" på uniformen, att hon haft en underbar examensflygning med avancerad flygning ovanför Vättern.
Flygarsnack
Mötet mellan de två veteranerna som flugit det mesta från öppna propellerplan till jet och Veronica Novak, blev först lite trevande men snart var flygarsnacket igång.
- Du kommer att upptäcka att det är i flygvapnet du kommer att få dina allra bästa och trognaste vänner.
Lite avundsjuk
Samtalet kom att handla både om kamratskap och de flygplan veteranerna fått flyga.
- Lite avundsjuk blir jag ju när jag hör om alla de flygplan ni fått flyga, sade Veronica Novak.
- Det var ju mer flygning på något sätt
Om ett år väntar Jas 39 Gripen och fortsatt grundläggande stridsflygsutbildning men veteranerna var inte så avundsjuka.
- Hon får ju bara flyga Gripen hela livet.
Flyguppvisning
Så bjöds de nya flygarna och de gamla och alla gäster flyguppvisning både med 37 Viggen och 39 Gripen och team 60.
Förutom Veronica utexaminerades också Erik Seeman, Fredrik Juhlin, Johan Bergkvist (bäste elev), Mårten Malm, Magnus Ericsson, Mats Iggborn och Magnus Nordlander.
Trots att det skiljer 60 år mellan examensdags för Ulf Björkman t v och Sven-Erik Ersbacken t h och Veronica Novak, tog det bara några minuter innan flygarsnacket kom igång. Bild: JARL ASKLUND

Høyre-pilot melder seg ut av partiet i protest mot Høie: - Høie tar ikke ansvar
Gruppeleder i Brønnøysund Høyre og ambulanseflypilot Synnøve Egeness Lilleli melder seg ut av regjeringspartiet i protest mot helseminister Bent Høies håndtering av ambulanseflysituasjonen i Nord-Norge.
To av åtte ambulansefly var ute av beredskap sist helg, fordi flygerne hadde meldt seg uskikket til å fly. Og ifølge de siste oppdateringene fra Lufttransport, publisert i Nordlys torsdag, er fem ambulansefly ute av drift på grunn av mannskapsmangel frem til neste uke.
Verst er situasjonen i Finnmark.
Ambulansefly måtte leies fra Sverige – helseministeren ser alvorlig på konflikten
Brudd i forhandlingene
Sist fredag brøt forhandlingene mellom Flygerforbundet og selskapet som skal fly for Luftambulansetjenesten HF fra neste sommer, Babcock Scandinavian Air Ambulance, sammen. Usikkerheten som oppsto etter forhandlingsbruddet, førte til tvil om pilotene som var omfattet av forhandlingene, var skikket til å fly, opplyste Flygerforbundet til NTB.
Flygerne opererer ambulansefly fra baser over hele landet; Kirkenes, Alta, Tromsø, Bodø, Brønnøysund, Ålesund og Gardermoen.
Synnøve Egeness Lilleli er ambulanseflypilot for Lufttransport, som i dag, og frem til kontrakten løper ut sommeren 2019, skal levere ambulanseflytjenesten.
– Jeg kan ikke lenger stå inne for Høyres politikk. Dette går på tvers av det jeg kan akseptere av arbeidsrettigheter og sosial profil i et anbud som aldri skulle vært ute. Og da er jeg nødt til å bryte med det, sier Lilleli til VG.
Uholdbar situasjon
Hun viser til et sitat Bent Høie (H) ga til Nordlys, hvor helseministeren sier:
– Jeg mener helseforetaket har håndtert situasjonen godt.
I et brev til Helseministeren, Høyres hovedorganisasjon og Høyres stortingsgruppe, skriver Lilleli at «Norsk flygerforbund (..) har tidlig i anbudsprosessen vært inne og påpekt for Helsedepartementet at en virksomhetsoverdragelse må ligge inne i anbudet for å sikre en forsvarlig drift og overgang.»
Men:
– Nå har Babcock sett bort ifra det, og folk er redde for jobbene sine, sier Lilleli.
Administrerende direktør i Babcock, Marius Hansen opplyste overfor NTB før helgen at alle dagens flyvere kan søke seg over til selskapet, og at fristen for dette er forlenget.
– Sliter på familieliv
Lilleli sier situasjonen for pilotene etter bruddet i forhandlingene før helgen, er svært uholdbar.
– Det sliter på familieliv og fritid å tenke på at vi ikke har en jobb å gå til. At avtalen ble trukket kan ikke tolkes annerledes enn det at de ikke ønsker at vi skal fly for dem, sier Lilleli.
Ifølge Nordlys har 12 piloter allerede sagt opp jobben i Lufttransport.
Til Nordlys sier administrerende direktør i Lufttransport, Frank Wilhelmsen, at det er naivt å tro at selskapet kommer til å klare å levere nok ambulansefly i beredskap frem til kontrakten løper ut neste sommer.
– Høie har ikke tatt ansvar, og peker på at helseforetaket har håndtert situasjonen godt. Det er ikke tilfellet. Det er skapt et kaos, sier Lilleli.
Høie: - Leit
Helseminister Bent Høie (H) sier det er leit at Lilleli har valgt å melde seg ut av Høyre.
– Jeg opplever at hun har gjort en god jobb for partiet, og håper hun kommer tilbake i Høyre, sier Høie til VG.
Han sier at han forstår at situasjonen er vanskelig for henne som pilot. Men:
– Det er slik at forhandlinger om lønns- og arbeidsvilkår er et spørsmål mellom partene. Det verken kan eller skal jeg gripe inn i, sier Høie.
Helseministeren opplyser at han nå følger beredskapsituasjonen i Luftambulansetjenesten tett.
– Hvordan kan helseforetaket ha håndtert situasjonen godt, når bereskapen er svekket?
– Nei, det er ikke greit i det hele tatt. Jeg har vært opptatt av at helseregionen har satt inn tiltak for å kompensere for situasjonen som har oppstått, og opplever at de isolert sett har håndtert situasjonen som har oppstått godt. Så lenge de setter inn nødvendige tiltak, så er det ikke nødvendig for meg å gripe inn.Høie opplyser til VG at han fredag blant annet skal møte Luftambulanseforetaket HF for å se på langsiktige tiltak for ambulanseflyberedskapen.
https://www.banett.no/nyheter/2016/05/26/D%C3%B8gnberedskapen-skal-opprettholdes-12794264.ece
Døgnberedskapen skal opprettholdes
Ambulanseflyet i Brønnøysund skal ikke skjæres ned fra 2019.
Mandag denne uken møttes direktørene i de fire helseforetakene i Norge for å diskutere framtidens luftambulansetjeneste. Til neste år skal alle ambulanseflyene ut på nytt anbud, og endringene som gjøres blir gjeldende fra sommeren 2019. De fire direktørene skulle derfor bli enige om hva de ønsker at Luftambulansetjenesten bestiller inn av beredskap.
Lukter på nye ambulansefly
Må finne løsninger før ny avtale er på plass innen juli 2017.
For Helgeland var det mest kritiske spørsmålet om ambulanseflyet i Brønnøysund skal opprettholdes med døgnberedskap. BAnett får torsdag bekreftet hos kommunikasjonsdirektør Siw Sandvik hos Helse Nord at det ikke blir gjort endringer på flyet i Brønnøysund fra 2019.
– Døgnberedskapen oppretholdes, og kostnadene dette innebærer skal fordeles gjennom en avtale mellom Helse Nord og Helse Midt, sier Sandvik.
Det er Luftambulansetjenesten ANS, som eies av helseforetakene, som skal utarbeide og lyse ut flykontraktene på anbud. Luftambulansetjenesten sendte tidligere i år ut et strategidokument som beskriver flere ulike løsninger for ambulanseflyene i Norge i perioden 2019 til 2030.
Kunne blitt dagfly
Et av forslagene som lå på bordet var å redusere flyberedskapen i Brønnøysund fra døgnkontinuerlig til at flyet kun skal operere på dagtid. Dette forslaget ble møtt med unison motstand fra kommunene på Helgeland. Kommunestyrene i alle 18 kommunene på Helgeland sendte derfor ut et felles innspill til høringen, der det ble krevd at døgnberedskapen opprettholdes.
BA erfarer at nettopp døgnberedskap i Brønnøysund var gjenstand for diskusjon på møtet mellom direktørene. I bestillingen fra direktørene ligger det nå to nye jetfly, ett på Gardermoen og ett i Tromsø. Ett av løsningsforslagene i strategidokumentet var at døgnberedskapen fjernes i Brønnøysund, fordi jetflyet i Tromsø gir utvidet dekning.
Men en avtale mellom Helse Nord og Helse Midt betyr altså at beredskapen skal opprettholdes på dagens nivå også i framtiden - i tillegg til at Tromsø får et jetfly. Alta, som i dag har ett døgnfly og ett dagfly, mister sitt dagfly fra sommeren 2019 - fordi jetflyet i Tromsø kompenserer for dette.
Jubel hos varaordføreren
Varaordfører Torstein Moe mener dette er en seier både for Helgeland, og Sør-Helgeland.
- Det er en fantastisk hyggelig nyhet for alle oss som bor her, og for de som har et hjerte for Helgeland og Sør-Helgeland. Vi gleder oss over budskapet. All ære til de som har stått på for dette. Dette betyr mye for oss, som står uten sykehus. Fly og helikopter er da blant de viktigste tiltakene for å kompensere for dette, sier Moe.
Han mener et fly med dagberedskap ikke lenger kan regnes for å være en del av akuttberedskapen.
- Meg bekjent så blir folk syke både på ettermiddag og kveld. Hadde man fjernet døgnberedskapen, så hadde man vært over på en annen type tilbud. En bestilt transportløsning, sier Moe.
Optimist for fremtiden
Kommunestyrene på Helgeland var derfor svært tydelige på at de ønsket døgnberedskapen opprettholdt.
- Dette - kombinert med det nye konseptet for et distriktsmedisinsk senter i Brønnøysund - gir meg troen på at vi går en lysere framtid i møte når det gjelder helse på Sør-Helgeland, mener varaordfører Moe.

At the recent Townsville Open Day some may not have been aware of a very interesting aspect of the event. DUAN learned that the first RAAF fast jet female pilot in training was in attendance with the 76 SQN display. Having the first female fast jet pilot in the RAAF training system is a big milestone for the RAAF and also a great step forward for women in the Air Force regarding diversity in the fast jet cockpit. There has not yet been an official female fast jet pilot in the RAAF but there has been a number of females onboard F-111s as B/Ns in the past. RAAF female aircrew do routinely fly the jet powered C-17 Globemaster and the C-130J Hercules transports. The trainee fast jet pilot on the Open Day spent her time explaining the 76 SQN Bae 127 Hawk lead in fighter trainer jet to the general public. The 76 SQN pilot graciously on the day took a few moments out of handling the long general public queue to let DUAN take some photos of her .

Captain Clancy Morrical USAF Female F-16 Fighter pilot

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156140073101068&set=a.10150786441546068

First female F-16 pilot graduates from USAF Weapons School
https://www.spangdahlem.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1408749/first-female-f-16-pilot-graduates-from-usaf-weapons-school/
As the U.S. Air Force closed its 70th year of breaking barriers, the U.S. Air Force Weapons School (USAFWS) 16th Weapons Squadron Class 17B graduated its first female F-16 Weapons Instructor Course pilot. Capt. Clancy Morrical, 480th Fighter Squadron instructor pilot assigned to Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, credited windows of opportunity that opened when her tactical and leadership skills were ready for the challenge. Attending the USAFWS is not a decision to make lightly. The school produces doctorate-level tactical experts and leaders for the joint force, requiring students to demonstrate dedication and perseverance throughout a rigorous six-month course. “It’s timing,” Morrical said. “I’ve met so many wonderful women and men in the F-16 community who are certainly very qualified to come to the weapons school, but they have other priorities in their lives, professionally and personally.” Lt. Col. Hugh Walker, 16th WPS commander, said he noticed Morrical’s outstanding capabilities and leadership skills while he was at Spangdahlem AB in 2015. He knew immediately it would not be long before Morrical was selected for the weapons school. “I walked into the mission planning room, and she had the entire mission planning cell around the table,” said Walker. “She was giving direction, delegating tasks, and leading a group of 30 men and women. You don't see that out of young pilots and mission commanders very often. “I talked with her commander at the time and explained to him that she was an impressive instructor pilot,” Walker continued. “He then corrected me because she was only a young flight lead. Pretty incredible!” Morrical’s decision to attend the USAFWS was grounded in her passion for education and her parents’ military service with the U.S. Army. With a bachelor’s degree in education, she chose to become an instructor pilot with the U.S. Air Force, rather than teach in the private sector. Attending weapons school was the next logical step in honing her teaching skills as well as an opportunity to integrate with other squadrons and platforms. “The 16th WPS started working with the intelligence and air battle manager squadrons right away,” said Morrical. “It was surprising in a positive way to have the opportunity to get to know and work with those units. Other than in a Red Flag exercise, we don’t get to work with them that closely to see that we’re all working hard to achieve the same goal.” The weapons school’s pace challenges students to manage their time wisely and learn quickly from the instructors’ constructive feedback, which focuses on areas for improvement. This allows students to stay on track with the course’s dynamic timeline of complex missions. “It can be a challenge to stay positive,” said Morrical. “You’re under a microscope the entire time – you get a lot of immediate feedback.” Walker described Morrical as having an incredible mix of intensity and approachability, and said she will have an incredible impact in the F-16 and the U.S. Air Force. “She is meticulous,” Walker explained. “It is kind of incredible. Everything is always structured and in order, and every detail is accounted for in planning, execution and debrief. Everything has a purpose. I hope she teaches more folks to be that way.” Now that Morrical is a weapons school graduate, she intends to help others in the same way. “First, I’d have an honest conversation with [people who want to attend] and find out why they want to go to weapons school,” said Morrical. “They need to have their purpose clearly in mind because it will not be the easiest thing they’ve ever done. Then, I’d tell them the flying experiences will be the best they’ll probably ever have in their careers, and the instruction will be second to none.”

ORHS grad flying high as F-16 pilot
https://www.yourconroenews.com/neighborhood/moco/news/article/ORHS-grad-flying-high-as-F-16-pilot-9252743.php
Given her family’s military lineage, Clancy Morrical seemed destined to become a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force. Her father served in the Vietnam War as a helicopter pilot, while her mother is a retired physical therapist with the U.S. Army. And Morrical’s grandmother was in the U.S. Navy during World War II. But it wasn’t until she was attending Baylor University that Morrical determined her career path - one that has led to Osan Air Base in South Korea where she is currently the only F-16 female pilot in the 36th Fighter Squadron. A first lieutenant, Morrical is one of 723 female pilots serving in the Air Force. In addition to his Army career, Jim Morrical - Clancy’s father - was a commercial pilot for Continental. But his love of flying didn’t resonate initially with Clancy. “I didn’t go to a lot of air shows or do a lot of things you often hear pilots say they did,” she said. Although Clancy Morrical and her family lived in The Woodlands, she attended Oak Ridge High School, where she got her first exposure to the Air Force. “Well, actually, the only reason I joined the (Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) program was it allowed me to be a student at Oak Ridge,” Morrical said. “I could attend The Woodlands High School but I wanted to be with my older sister (Courtney) at Oak Ridge. “She (Courtney) joined JROTC. So did I, and praise the Lord I did! It was through instructors in JROTC that ‘Air Force pilot’ was first whispered into my ear.” A 2006 graduate of ORHS, Clancy Morrical heard those whispers of support again at Baylor, where she earned a degree in Education and completed her officer’s training. By then, Clancy Morrical was on her way to training on F-16 Fighting Falcons at Luke Air Force in Arizona. Clancy Morrical finished the initial training course as a distinguished graduate, and scored an average of 99.7 percent on 10 tests involving all facets of the F-16 operations. She also earned the Top Pencil award for finishing first in her class of 16. “We’re real excited for her accomplishments,” Jim Morrical said of his daughter’s flying career. When asked her most exhilarating moment as a fighter pilot, Clancy Morrical said it was firing the M61A1 Gatling gun on the F-16 for the first time. “That was by far the most exhilarating moment. The best part is that it never gets old” she said. Clancy Morrical’s scariest moment as a fighter pilot came during a night flight in which she unknowingly came “uncomfortably” close to another F-16. “It doesn't mean that our jobs change (when it gets dark). This means that we fly tactical sorties requiring challenging skills to be accomplished in the dark,” she said. “ We do fly on NVGs (night vision goggles), but they don't turn night into day. Safety is always a concern and we do our best to mitigate risk but flying a fighter is an inherently dangerous job. I think this was the night I realized just how dangerous even training can be.” Osan Air Base is located 40 miles south of Seoul, the South Korean capital. With tensions between South and North Korea running hot, Clancy Morrical said she has reflected on the possibility of one day flying into combat. “Combat is a reality for fighter pilots, but a very different one from that of the men and women on the ground,” she said. “So yes, I have thought about it, but only enough to remember why and for whom, we fly. When necessary, I'll do my job the best that I can and just as I have trained.”

USAF Female B-52 Pilot Major Christin Hart Mastracchio

Maj. Christin Hart, 419th Flight Test Squadron B-52 flight commander, inspects the B-52 Stratofortress before takeoff at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Feb. 28, 2018. Upgraded equipment and software for all Air Force platforms, including the B-52, go through two phases of testing: developmental and then operational. This flight combines both testing phases into one, saving the Air Force time and money while delivering warfighting capability faster to operational units.

Christin Hart Mastracchio was just 13 years old when she realized she wanted to be an astronaut. The “a-ha” moment came when her father asked what she wanted to be when she grew up. Whatever it was, he said, she had to be passionate about it. “He asked me what job I would pay to do instead of being paid to do it, and the only thing I could think of was fly in space,” Mastracchio recalls. “So that was it.”Casting aside the possibility of pink tutus, the Clear Lake teen worked her way through high school, excelling both academically and athletically. An accomplished gymnast who trained at Bela Karolyi’s gymnastics school as a youngster, Mastracchio was relentless in her drive and ambition. But when the time came to start high school, she shifted her focus and efforts away from gymnastics to competitive cheerleading and college. Gymnastics and tumbling had prepared her for the former; tenacity would guide her through the latter. She had, in fact, already set her sights on the U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY (USAFA), as it offered her the opportunity to study astronautical engineering.“One way you get to be an astronaut is to go to one of the service academies,” says Mastracchio, who was also a cheerleader for the Academy’s football team. “You study something like aerospace engineering and then you apply to be a test pilot. From there, you apply to be a candidate for astronaut school at NASA.” After graduating from the USAFA, the five-foot, four-inch blonde, who goes by the call sign “Sparta” and is “just exactly tall enough” to be a pilot, went directly to graduate school at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. There, she studied advanced aeronautical engineering. On completing a master’s degree, Mastracchio, by then an officer, was assigned to the NATO joint jet pilot training program at Sheppard AFB. From there, she went to Barksdale AFB, where she learned to fly B-52 aircraft, a “450,000-pound monstrosity of metal, fuel and bombs that’s older than my parents.”At some point between college graduation and flight school, she married fellow Houstonian DAVID MASTRACCHIO, whose own father is astronaut RICK MASTRACCHIO. Four years ago, they relocated to Minot AFB, where she is now a Captain and B-52 commander, only one of three female B- 52 pilots on the base. From there, she often flies 19 hours to undertake missions and training in and around Guam. Most recently, Mastracchio garnered a coveted spot at the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School at Edwards AFB in California. One of three women who made it into the program, she will spend a year there studying for another master’s degree while undergoing flight training with nearly 30 different aircraft and learning the systems of each. Eventually, she’ll be able to serve as a kind of consultant between engineers and pilots. Or she might end up in astronaut school. Either way, her future looks big and bright.“When I was a little kid, I never thought I’d really be a pilot. But it was having this big goal that made me try all these different things and discover my untapped potential,” Mastracchio says.“Be a pilot’ was the best advice nobody ever gave me.”

Letenje nije moja profesija, letenje je moj hobi. Mislim da je to jedan od najzahtjevnijih hobija koji čovjek može odabrati. Ne znam kojim riječima bih opisala taj osjećaj samostalnog letenja, kada toliko uloženog truda, energije, volje i pripreme (pogotovo uz malo dijete koje ni jednu noć od rođenja nije prespavalo u komadu) urodi plodom, kada doslovno na temelju vlastitog znanja dobiješ krila. I naravno, ništa bez velike potpore muža, koji mi čuva glavu svaki dan. #theskyhunterfamily #femalepilot #cessna150 @theskyhunterfamily #aviators #goprohero6 #aviationlovers #womeninaviation #alphaindustries

USAF Female F-15E Fighter pilot gets a warm welcome from her baby and husband after returning to RAF Lakenheath from a six-month combat deployment in southwest Asia to RAF Lakenheath, England, Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018.

Lakenheath airmen return home after fighting ISIS:

RAF LAKENHEATH, England — The last 494th Fighter Squadron airmen to deploy on a six-month mission to fight the Islamic State have returned to Lakenheath, Air Force officials said. The mission included more than 450 airmen, who began returning in early October to the sights and sounds of family members gathered at the flight line welcoming them home. The remaining contingent of airmen returned last week, service officials said. The squadron, “associated maintenance and other support elements were engaged in the fight against ISIS,” Col. William Marshall, 48th Fighter Wing commander, told Stars and Stripes. “In essence, flushing out the last remaining safe holds of ISIS and finishing eradicating them from the battlefield.” The squadron flew 2,000 F-15E Strike Eagle sorties in about 11,000 flight hours and dropped more than 500 precision-guided munitions in support of U.S. Central Command operations in southwest Asia. Marshall said that hard work and long hours from the aircraft maintainers kept the missions moving. “When we show up to the jet, we take a quick walk around and hop in with implicit trust that the maintainers have given us a safe and effective airplane to fly,” said Marshall, who has more than 650 hours of combat experience in the F-15E. “They were flying sorties 24 hours a day, seven days a week for anywhere from three to nine hours plus.” The 48th Fighter Wing employs three combat-ready squadrons of F-15E Strike Eagle and F-15C Eagle fighter aircraft for United States Air Forces in Europe–Air Forces Africa.

I do not know about female air force pilots, but female Army helicopter pilots are crazy. They are not afraid of drinking heavy on the weekend and partying with lower enlisted lmao
