Q&A with Emma Percy: Young female pilot defies status quo in aviation

Q: Where did your interest in aviation come from? A: My dad does fly and I think that’s really what got me started with flying, you know just kind of being interested in that part of his life. So, he got me my first lesson (at Shelby County Airport). And after I took that first lesson, I was kind of hooked on it. It took me about a year of training to get my private pilot’s license which is the first license.
