Day In The Life

First All Female, African-American Flight Crew

We're the first all female African American flight crew.

Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    On February 12, 2009, Rachelle Jones, Stephanie Grant, Diana Galloway, and Robin Rogers became the first all female African-American flight crew.

  • 2.

    Flight crews are chosen at random, but never in history was a crew made up exclusively of African-American women.

  • 3.

    Each woman took a unique path to a career in aviation: Grant was originally in the military, Jones worked at a ticket gate, Rogers ran a daycare center.

  • 4.

    Grant loves the sense of purpose she gets from flying: "each flight is like a mission" and "at the end, you've helped someone."

  • 5.

    Until Rogers met an African-American male flight attendant, she didn't even realize it was a profession she could enter.

  • 6.

    Jones was one of only 10 African-American female flight captains in the country.

  • 7.

    Galloway hopes to show her granddaughter, "you don't have to be a maid in the hotel; you can run that hotel."

  • 8.

    Still consider aviation a male-dominated, white-dominated industry, but feel proud they've set an example for young black women, children.
