Aerobatic flying, as described and practiced by Cecilia Aragon, a world champion aerobatic pilot, is a dance in the sky, with spins and turns and gravity-defying grace. Her memoir is Flying Free, My Victory over Fear to Become the First Latina Pilot on the US Aerobatic Team —a true adventure story. Her descriptions of flying are as riveting as her personal story is inspiring. Cecilia is not only an air-show pilot and author but the first Latina full professor in the College of Engineering at the University of Washington. She joins Suzanne M. Lang in conversation on KRCB’s A Novel Idea.
A Novel Idea airs on the first and fifth Sundays of every month at 10:00 am on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org /Download the FREE KRCB mobile app @ iTunes & Google Play!
