Fighter Pilot - Mandy Hickson
What is....an Officer but not a Gentleman????? It is...Mandy Hickson! Mandy dreamt of being a fast jet pilot when she was just 13. She went on to lead an entirely male dominated Front Line Tornado Squadron, flying a multi-million pound jet in hostile territory for the Air Force.
In this week's episode Gwen has the immense privilege of talking to Mandy one-on-one about her incredible journey to become one of the UK’s first female, fast-jet pilots.
You can read about how Mandy overcame obstacles and developed the skills needed to succeed in a demanding and unusual career in her fascinating book, An Officer Not A Gentleman. Find out more about what she does now - helping businesses and inspiring leaders - on her website.
