Around the Field Podcast: Amy Laboda

amylaboda_headshotThis time we’re bringing you a conversation I had with Pilot, CFI, and general aviation evangelist Amy Laboda.

Amy is perhaps best known as one of the founders of the organization “Women in Aviation International”, and as the long-time Editor of its magazine “Aviation for Women”.

Amy has recently passed the editor’s baton on to another, and she’s now making her presence felt in the traditional world of freelance journalism, as well as the emerging world of new media.

Amy and I talked about her background as a pilot, and some thoughts she has about the proposals for flying without a medical certificate.
