Student Feature: Macy Has Made Her Mark as One of the Youngest Student Pilots to Start at 快猫视频

 |  Blog

From the moment she was 4 years old visiting the Kennedy Space Center and threw a fit because she wasn’t actually going to space that day, Macy knew she wanted to pursue aviation and spend her days in the sky.

After giving it some thought, Macy decided that being a pilot would be the perfect job for her to spend time in the sky and visit many different destinations. From that moment in the Kennedy Space Center, she had her mind made up about what she wanted to do with her life and it’s motivated her ever since.

Growing up in Georgetown, Texas, 快猫视频’s GTU campus became Macy’s pathway to the career she has always dreamed of having. With an easy commute to school and supportive peers, Macy loves the strong sense of community at the Georgetown campus and describes it as a “small-town feeling” where everyone knows everyone, and there’s always someone willing to help out when you need it.

Once she had her first Discovery Flight at 13 years old, Macy graduated high school early at just 16 and was ready to get started on her career. The only thing stopping her from signing up for flight school as soon as she got her diploma was her age. After taking a gap year while she waited to meet the age requirements to enroll and building even more excitement for the career ahead of her, she became one of the youngest students to start at 快猫视频.

What does she love about flying? Everything. “Being in the air is so peaceful. Everything goes out the window – it’s just flying and that’s all you have to focus on.”

Flight school doesn’t come without its challenges, but the people around Macy have been supportive and continue to cheer her on through every stage. To keep herself motivated, she is constantly thinking of the end goal and also looks back at all the years she’s wanted to be where she is, and how far she’s come in the journey to her professional pilot career.

Macy just completed Instrument Rating at 18 years old and said that it was her favorite part of training so far. Going forward, she’s most excited to become a certified flight instructor and start teaching other students. She’s determined to prove that even though she’s younger, she encompasses the skills and the confidence to teach other individuals how to fly and find that confidence in themselves too. She hopes to inspire others and show them that even though you are young, you can pursue aviation, become an instructor, and be the best you can be as you work towards your career.

If she’s not flying in the sky and studying on the ground, you can find Macy hiking, camping, working out, or hanging out with friends. As she progresses through training and becomes an instructor, she looks forward to building her hours and making it to the airlines – one day landing a position with United or Delta Airlines.
