Emily Warner cleared the runway for women to work as professional pilots. Recognized by the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame and the National Women’s Hall of Fame, Emily first discovered her life passion at the age of eighteen, when a chance invitation to sit in the cockpit on a commercial flight sparked her imagination and her desire to become a pilot. The flight lessons she paid for with her own money eventually led to a world of new career possibilities for women. Her inspiring story turns the open skies from metaphor to reality by encouraging women to dream big and reach high.
