Joining the Royal Air Force back in 1994 and becoming the second woman to ever fly the Tornado GR4 on the front line operating in hostile environments, Mandy Hickson had no idea that three words spoken by a young cadet would serve as the foundation for her overriding purpose in her second career. Now serving as Aviation Ambassador for the Department for Transport, Mandy is also in high demand as a keynote speaker across a range of business and education sectors. Sharing her inspirational journey to become a pioneering female fighter pilot with humour and passion, the three words that led Mandy to create purposeful impact were ‘just like you’.
“Three words. ‘Just like you.’ That's when I'd been about to go into the airlines and I thought, ‘just like you’, I don't need to do that. I can do something that can be way more impactful and that became my overriding purpose.”
