Talking Flight

We sat down with Captain Debbie Waingrow two days before her retirement flight at Alaska Airlines.

Captain Waingrow made history at Alaska Airlines by becoming the first Woman to be selected as a Check Captain to train, evaluate, and certify her fellow pilots.

Debbie comes from a family with deep roots in aviation. As a child, she was always at the airport hanging around with her cousin, Jill Richardson, who also later became an Alaska Airlines Captain. They spent a lot of time riding horses near the airport and hanging around their family's aviation business. The two girls were always taking flights in the family airplanes, and they had their solo flights on the same day. 

Please join us as Captain Debbie Waingrow shares the story of her amazing career in aviation.
