Jacquie B Warda – Aerobatic Pilot
United States, English
Many people tend to relax and settle into neutral while coasting toward retirement when they turn 50. When Jacquie B turned 50, she launched her solo aerobatic career with her one-of-a-kind Pitts Special biplane. She finally quit the humdrum of a white collar profession and realized her dream as an air show performer, becoming the first female pilot to enter the business at the age of 50.
With over 2,500 flight hours and more than 300 air show performances across the United States behind her, Jacquie B has proven that she has the talent, stamina, discipline, and guts to reach beyond the limits placed on her by naysayers.
Jacquie currently flies an Extra 300 monoplane. She holds sea and land Commercial Airplane Pilot Certificates and a Level 1 ACE card, which allows her to perform down to the surface.
