I go spotting sometimes! Well that is not unusual being a member here! Unusual for a female? Well I guess it's a minority.
The comment was made that there will be more female spotters in the future because times are changing, that is true (I hope).
For me, I have always been interested in aviation, but 2001 I am becoming a lot more serious about it. The reasons being that I am tired of being what other people want me to be, or expect me to be, combined with the 'turning 30' complex as well as Polly Vacher's world solo flight inspiration!!
I also find that as a female I probably blend in with the pax more, I'm not sure, what is the stereotype of a spotter!?
It' funny you mention horses, they were my 'life' for 14 years so it's true girls are horse mad! BUT we used to go riding along a beach that was right next to an airport, so you see I had the best of both worlds!
