Today I have the pleasure of speaking with fellow female aviator, Claire Schindler. Claire is a corporate pilot, event coordinator for CA Sky Kids, and advocate for aeromedical reform. We talk about Claire’s journey and her passion for flying; the ins and out of a professional aviatrix, and facing adversity in the work place. She opens up about mental health, the struggles the pandemic has posed for pilots, and how to stay physically and mentally healthy on the line. We also talk about her involvement with Sky Kids. ‘Sky Kids is an Arizona tax exempt and IRS 501c(3) charity dedicated to providing children and youths in the Valley of the Sun with special needs the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build self esteem and confidence through the unique experience of flight.’ You can donate to the charity at skykidsusa.org . Huge thanks to Claire for coming on the show, it was such a great pleasure to speak with another woman in aviation. I really admire her journey and everything that aviation means to her. She is definitely someone to look up too. You can follow Claire on Instagram @gillians_list Don’t forget to rate and subscribe to the show, thanks for listening!
