In the following, you will see the pictures of Ellie Carter, the youngest female pilot in the world.
The Youngest Female Pilot In The World
Ellie hit headlines in January 2019 after she became the youngest pilot of a one-person aircraft in Britain.
She also became the youngest solo glider pilot, after completing two six-minute flights on her 14th birthday.
We first met Ellie when she was given the task of helping to guide the plane down safely at the Royal International Air Tattoo at the Fairford Air Show.
Now her hopes of making a career as a pilot have been given a boost after the airline company EasyJet offered her time with a mentor – Training Captain Zoe Ebrey.
Just one in 20 of the world’s pilots is women.
So attracting and supporting young women into the profession is part of the airline’s plan.
Ellie says: “I’ve been interested in the physics and powered flight from as young as I can remember. Flying absolutely amazes me and continues to surprise me.”
“I hope that my story will encourage young girls to accomplish whatever they set their mind to, because if I can do it, so can they.”
