Dude, Chicks Fly Too
And that’s exactly what Marilyn Dash told the guy asking her where the pilot was standing in front of her single seat Pitts in her flight suit. Duh….Marilyn went from driving past the airport to getting her pilots license to being qualified to race at Reno in about 3 1/2 years.
AirplanePorn.com’s Chris Batcheller interviews Marilyn about how she got her start in racing, how you can get started in racing. They also discuss the Reno gang and what it’s like to zip around the pylons. She also talks about how aviation photographers play an important role from safety to making the airplanes faster.
Her passion for the sport has landed her a gig writing a monthly column for In-Flight USA (http://inflight.squarespace.com/the-pylon-place/) Magazine. She also blogs (http://pylonplace.blogspot.com/) and has her own t-shirt and calendar!
