The Normalcy of Deviance: Why Pilots Break This Rule

Thursday, December 28, 2017

As we leveled off at FL510, I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. Even though this altitude would make an SR-71 pilot roll their eyes, it still felt like we were on the edge of the universe.

Meet Erika Armstrong

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...
