Ali on the Run Show Episode 227: On the Job with Julia Harrington, Corporate Pilot

“Fear is not something you experience in an airplane. That’s your comfort zone.”

For many people, flying in an airplane is an anxiety-inducing adventure. But not for Julia Harrington. Julia is a corporate pilot and captain on two business jets, and on this On the Job episode, she talks about her adventures in the skies. Julia reminisces about her childhood dreams of becoming a pilot, and talks about the education required to get a pilot’s license. She talks about her first flight, whether she’s ever scared in the air, and what it’s like being a badass woman in a very male-dominated industry. (Plus, she offers reassuring advice for all the anxious fliers out there!)
