Mary Latimer is a woman who, when she didn't like the ratio of male-to-female pilots in the world, put together a plan and did something about it.  She established GIFT Academy...a place where females can get a week of FREE flight instruction--you pay only a nominal fee for aircraft and fuel--in the company of other girls and women.  The academy is a family affair in which Mary's pilot-daughter, Tamara, and pilot-grand-daughter, Amanda, also participate.  If you are a gal who simply wants to conquer your fear-of-flying, GIFT Academy can help with that, too!  If you are unable to attend GIFT Academy, know that Mary and Tamara will both, very generously, give you free mentoring via phone or email.

All the information you need is in this podcast.  Let Mary's multi-faceted aviation career as an Aircraft Mechanic, Flight Instructor, Corporate Pilot, Air Traffic Controller and Pilot Examiner be the inspiration for your success!
