BOOM SUPERSONIC published a “Fly By” article on May 4, 2021 in collaboration with Amy Spowart of the National Aviation Hall of Fame to recognize six barrier-breaking aviators during Women’s History Month.

I am one of the lucky six to be mentioned in the article “Women pilots: The daredevils, rule-breakers and pioneers who shaped aviation.” What an incredible honor! Read all about it here.

As part of Women’s History Month, Boom teamed up with the National Aviation Hall of Fame (NAHF) to spotlight six barrier-breaking women and bring their stories forward. These aviators broke barriers of gender, class, race — and sound — and made an indelible contribution to aviation and the world we live in.


Speed. Altitude. Gender. Race. These enshrinees broke barriers in aviation and beyond. They represent only a handful of the daring women who paved the way for others to follow, both in the air and on the ground.
