In today’s 21st century society, there isn’t much Women can’t do, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t still Male dominated industries. The RC world is one of those, but that is rapidly changing. As time passes, we see more women out at the fields; more women on the flight line; more women with transmitters in their hands. This year, Joe Nall was something special. Jeti USA made history by being the first ever, all Women Flight Team to perform at the noontime demos. Just to put that into perspective – The First in thirty three years of this event! For us, this was not meant to be monumental. We had a bunch of girls – that wanted to fly, so we created the Jeti USA Girl Flight Team. What it turned out to be was much more than we had anticipated, and we are proud to have been a part of it.
Our pilots, Ashleigh Heath and Aneta Bouskova, are both amazing in many ways, especially at what they do. Ashleigh has been flying for over five years, and she focuses mainly on 3D Flight. During an interview with her, when asked why she chose to pick up the sticks her answer was simple. “Because it’s fun.” Aneta learned to fly over ten years ago with her brother and her father. For her, it was a great way to spend time with her family. Now, she can’t put down the sticks.
We are proud to be involved in the Hobby, and we look forward to growing both of our teams. In the end, we want to let everyone know, that GIRLS FLY TOO!
Thank you for all your support!
