Energetic Anh-Thu Nguyen isn’t going to let anything stop her—and she never has.
Nguyen was born in Vietnam and educated at a UNICEF-built school in a village with no electricity. Since moving to the United States at age 12, she’s earned her airline transport pilot certificate and become a certificated flight instructor— rated to give instrument and multiengine instruction, no less.
Now, in an effort to inspire the next generation of female pilots and engineers and promote aviation as a career for women, she’ll attempt what only nine women before her have achieved: flying solo around the world.
With her proven tenacity, we’re betting she’s going to succeed. Find out more on the Women in Aerospace and Aviation website.
