Disillusioned with practicing law, Robin sought out another career and started training to become a pilot in 1991. Her primary flight instructor was a woman. Working full-time and flying only on weekends, Robin earned her Certified Flight Instructor ratings in eighteen months, quit practicing law and started instructing. Eventually, she flew as both a corporate and airline Captain. She’s flown everything from single-engine Cessnas to the Boeing 737 all over the US and the world. In addition to being a fixed-wing ATP, Robin is also a Commercial/Instrument rated helicopter pilot.
