In the high stakes, ego-driven world of aviation, this is an extraordinary bestselling true story of how a level-headed, self-deprecating woman with an aviation addiction finds herself in jail, her baby ripped from her arms, her piloting career taken away, and every feasible exit leads to a very dark place...
This story is about traveling through the new social, gender and cultural challenges woman are facing. You'll also get to see the view from the cockpit and why humor and a good attitude will keep you from coming unhinged after spending thousands of hours locked in a small cabin with men...Erika@achickinthecockpit.com
“In the rarified atmosphere of flying, Armstrong’s memoir of life as a female pilot gives us a fascinating glimpse into a world where men still rule. But it’s her write-from-the-gut style of story-telling and the unexpected turbulence she meets, not just in her career but in her personal life, that will captivate you. A Chick in the Cockpit is at turns riveting, informative, and break-your-heart funny.”

I wrote A Chick in the Cockpit in honor of all the quiet sacrifices that women make on a daily basis. In this new era of formidable females, we are now faced with the constant pressures of being a leader at work while at the same time, being a leader in our homes, our relationships and friendships. Then, we are made to believe we must do it all to be worthy. The irony is that the most "powerful" women I know are stay-at-home moms, but our society has overreached its goals and took value away from motherhood. If we're leaning in anywhere, we're not living a balanced life. This story will prove that if we lean back and put all our trust in someone else, they have the power to make us fall. It's a reminder to just stand up straight and be proud of whatever it is you're doing. As long as you own your life, the soul of who you are will thrive. Find out more...
