Happy International Women's Day

In honour of International Women’s Day, we wanted to highlight a female pilot who has put in the time, effort, and passion to become an incredible Stick ‘n Rudder pilot. 

She commenced her love affair with flying back in the 1990s and, since then, nothing has stopped her from becoming a female pilot (and owning her own aircraft). 

If you need some female inspiration, then have a read of her pilot journey and why she chose Stick N’ Rudder.  

In no particular order, here are some of our favourite spots that are bound to put the spark back in any relationship! 

Introducing: Terissa Kerr-Robinson

Start date:

2019/2020 – during COVID 🙄

Type of pilot course did you complete/ are completing: 

RAAAUS Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) 

Why did you want to become a pilot?

It’s a love story! 

I started my career after university as a cadet pilot in the 1990s, however I lost class 1 in medical, so couldn’t become a commercial pilot. But I always wanted to return to flying privately. So, I achieved a class 2 in medical, bought a Cessna aircraft, fell in love with flying even more – nothing has stopped me.

What made you choose Stick N’ Rudder?

I chose Stick N’ Rudder because they are the best because: 

**  They offer tailwheel endorsements
** They are friendly and personable
** The staff are professional 
** The instructors are world-class

Describe your pilot journey with Stick N’ Rudder: 


There were unforeseen interruptions due to covid19 and airline work, but Stick N’ Rudder were always accommodating, flexible and available with alternative options.

What’s your favourite place to fly and why?

Over my home village: Peregian beach and Noosa. There are views for miles. 💙🛫

Most people start by ‘testing out the air’ with our Trial Introductory Flight before completing the Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC).
