Premiere at AeroLogic: Three women in the cockpit

(PresseBox) ( Schkeuditz, )
An Aerologic Boeing 777F with three women pilots in the cockpit took off from Leipzig/Halle Airport at 7.05 a.m. last Saturday. The crew consisted of Commander Cristina Rossi, Senior First Officer Monika Kölling and First Officer Stefanie Däubler. Their flight took them via Bahrain to Singapore before returning yesterday through New Delhi with an ontime touchdown as usual in Leipzig/Halle at 5.51 p.m. Flight Operations Manager Josef Moser: "This is a premiere in international aviation. Never before has a freighter been crewed by three women pilots. We're proud of the fact that Aerologic has so many women pilots."

With women accounting for around eight per cent of its complement of its pilots, Aerologic is currently well above the national and international average. "It is important to us not only that pilots can fly well, but also that they fit well in the existing team, be they male or female pilots," said Moser.
