In this episode, recorded in the open air at Te Kowhai Aerodrome, Hamilton, Dave Homewood talks with three ladies at a Fly In of the New Zealand Association of Women in Aviation (NZAWA), which was formerly known as the Airwoman’s Association of New Zealand.
The first guest is NZAWA President Julie Bubb, of Paeroa. She is followed by Neroli Henwood of Hamilton. And lastly is one of the original founding members of the NZAWA, Judy Costello.
All three ladies talk about the association, its purpose and activities and what it means to them. And they also talk about their personal experiences as pilots. Judy is particularly interesting in that she is one of New Zealand’s earliest female commercial pilots and instructors.
Note: As this is recorded on an active airfield there’s a little wind noise and background sounds of aircraft movements. Time constraints forced by other commitments meant Dave could only record three interviews, but he hopes to record more stories with NZAWA members and with females in New Zealand aviation in the future, so if you can assist with suggestions, please email Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org
