British aviator on global expedition lands in Jaipur

JAIPUR

Flying across 23 countries in a plane with an open cockpit, British aviatrix Tracey Curtis-Taylor has said her expedition is aimed at encouraging women in the aviation industry which faces global shortage of female engineers.

Taylor, who is flying in her open cockpit vintage biplane “Spirit of Artemis” from Great Britain to Australia across 23 countries, said the expedition has been challenging and involved high risk yet she enjoyed and getting phenomenal support from the international community, reports The Economic Times.

“Real purpose of my flight is to celebrate what Amy Johnson, first female pilot to fly alone from Britain to Australia, achieved in 1930 and that not as a pilot but as an engineer,” Taylor told an audience last night at the Rambagh Palace Hotel where she was felicitated by General Insurance Corporation of India for the feat said.
