“Flying is a great equalizer. The plane doesn’t know or care about your gender as a pilot … You just have to perform.”
Lt. Col. Christine Mau, USAF.
The plane also doesn’t know or care if you’re tired, or if you were going to study more tomorrow, or if you’re in a hurry.
Quote is in a nice article, Meet The First Female F-35 Pilot, by Tom Demerly.
“You just have to perform. That’s all anyone cares about when you’re up there — that you can do your job, and that you do it exceptionally well.”
