Luz Beattie laughs when she says she worked in just about “every other industry” until she became involved in aviation. Ironically, she’s also worked in just about every facet of aviation, too. She got into aviation, almost by chance. Beattie graduated from college with a business degree and was working at a downtown Manhattan bank when she found a magazine lying about while she was eating lunch. “It talked about aviation colleges, and I read it from cover to cover,” she recalls. “I decided that I should look into it.” While she had always wanted to fly, Beattie says she never thought it could become a career.
