The sky’s the limit for women in aviation

This month’s edition of Women Moving Transport features three leaders in the field of aviation.

Of all the sectors in the transport and logistics industry, aviation attracts more women – primarily in the roles of flight attendants and ground crew. However, the following three women are leading by example in male-dominated roles.

Tracy Lamb is a Global RPAS Safety Manager (RPAS is Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) with SGS HART Aviation. Tracy has a wealth of experience in the sector including over 7,000 flight hours as: an airline pilot on the Boeing 737; a senior flight instructor; charter pilot; and as an international corporate jet pilot. Read her full profile here to get a better idea of just how much she has packed into her career!

Caroline Wilkie’s career in aviation spans most of her working life but for the last five years she has been at the helm of the Australian Airports Association as the Chief Executive Officer. With qualifications and experience in law, public affairs, policy, governance and financial management, Caroline is a leader in the boardroom and in her field. Learn more about Caroline here.

Johanna Osborne has aviation in her blood – collectively, her family has over 40,000 hours flying experience! The Helicopter Flying Instructor who currently works for Airways Aviation on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast aspires to one day work in helicopter rescue operations and cites her father as one of her great role models. Johanna’s full profile is available here.
