We were delighted to welcome Jennifer Allen to meet with students to talk them them about a career in the airline industry. Jennifer is a commercial airline pilot who works for a private jet company.. She is one of a small number of female pilots and the only black female pilot.Jennifer told the girls that from an early age her dream was to be a pilot.
She said "I remember going to the fairground and being in the model plane on the merry-go-round imaging I was the pilot". Jennifer's career began as an engineer and then she trained to be a pilot. She has worked for Net flights for 18 years. As a pilot of a private jet company she has flown many famous people including Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Beckham's!
We look forward to Jennifer visiting us again to talk to our girls more about engineering and opportunities in this field across the airline industry.
