“From Fear of Flying to the World Aerobatic Championships”
Member, U.S. Aerobatic Team, 1991-94
Aerobatic champion and airshow pilot Cecilia Aragon describes her journey overcoming a fear of flying: how a shy woman afraid to climb in an airplane became an airshow performer of low-altitude loops, spins and rolls.
She holds the record for shortest time from first solo in an airplane to membership on the United States Aerobatic Team, and was a medalist at the World Aerobatic Championships, the Olympics of Aviation.
The talk will include clips of television footage featuring in-cockpit video and an airshow over San Francisco.
