Aviator Girl

The profession of pilot, once inaccessible for women, is becoming more and more popular among them. Girls who fall in love with the sky enter flying schools regardless of the imminent hardships and busy schedules. In a new RT Documentary film, several young women, students, and seasoned professionals in aerobatics and civil aviation talk about their journey to becoming professionals. Even being on the brink or fuelling a plane in a 30-degree frost hasn’t kept them from the profession. While Ekaterina, an aerobatics pilot, is getting ready for the next competition and practices her loops surviving the G-load, Maria serves long shifts on her Boeing 737, not knowing when she will make it home. So how did they get to where they are?

Watch "Aviator Girl" on RTD website and on RT's live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT's schedule page.
