From the front desk of a fixed base operator in Minnesota to the captain's seat of a commercial airliner, Erika Armstrong has experienced everything aviation has to offer. During her piloting career, she was a Red Cross, a Part 135 operator on demand charter, corporate, cargo, and hazmat, as well as an air ambulance pilot and captain, flying 28 different aircraft before going to the airlines where she flew all three seats on the Boeing 727.

In addition to her aviation experience, she has a bachelor’s degree in international business and economics from the University of Denver, additional journalism education from the University of Minnesota, and is working towards a master’s degree at Embry.
