FLY LIKE A GIRL
The Story, The Stickers, The Patches
This is my original sketch from the summer of 2019. I was an Instructor Pilot in the T-38C at the time, so I took a picture with my helmet on, and quickly sketched up the idea. This sketch turned into the PVC patch you see below. I chose the phrase "fly like a girl" because similar phrases are used all the time, and they are almost always synonymous with "worse." This patch takes back that phrase and repurposes it. Yes, I fly like a girl, girls are awesome!
The Original Patch
This "Fly Like a Girl" patch was originally planned to be a one time production for the AETC Women's Fly-in that year. However, once the patches were handed out - they took off! Over the years, I received lots of requests to make additional versions of the patch; versions that matched the diversity of women in aviation.
The New Patches
Representation Matters! You can't dream to be something that you don't know exists... So I made three new patches in order to better represent the spectrum of diversity within the aviation community!
