Over the summer, Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) awarded their annual Get into the AIR scholarships to two inspiring female pilots. Today, we are checking in with Chelsea Dorman. Chelsea is currently the program coordinator at the College Park Aviation Museum. She guides young aviators daily on tours and activities all about aviation at the oldest continuously operating airport in the world. Now, she finally is taking to the skies herself.
Thanks to the Get into the AIR Scholarship, Chelsea has started lessons out of Potomac Airfield in Friendly, MD. With the skyline of Washington D.C. in the distance and the traffic from National above her, Chelsea’s lessons have focused on the importance of awareness of the airspace around her.
Her flight instructor is a friend which makes for a comfortable and fun learning environment. Chelsea says that her taxiing still takes some work, however, is getting more confident in the air after each lesson. “There’s so much to cover, but I feel like I’m making good headway,” she explained.
Since 1999, AIR has remained closely connected to the industry they serve, many of their customers are friends and some are even family. This is because all the agents at AIR are pilots and understand the needs and challenges in owning or renting an aircraft and aviation related businesses. No matter your involvement in aviation, AIR can provide a comprehensive yet economical solution for your needs.
