About the Event
The May Smokehouse Pilots Club meeting will be held Wednesday May 6th, starting at 5:30pm. This month we are pleased to have NTSB’s Heidi Kemner as our guest speaker.
Heidi Kemner is a native of Leesburg, Virginia, and has been around aviation all her life. She took her first flight when she was just a baby as her father would take the family flying around the Shenandoah Valley on weekends. While still a student at Loudoun County High School, Ms. Kemner started flying lessons at age 15. She flew her first solo flight at age 16 and earned her private pilot certificate when she was 17. As Heidi worked toward earning her bachelor’s degree in Safety Science at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, she would fill her summers with flight lessons at Leesburg Airport and interning at the National Transportation Safety Board. Heidi completed her bachelor’s degree at ERAU in 2010 and took a full-time internship with the National Transportation Safety Board as an investigative assistant. She was hired in 2013 as an air safety investigator and during her time at the NTSB, she has participated in over 350 aircraft accidents investigations all over the East Coast and has traveled to more than 45 aircraft accident scenes in several states.
Heidi will be sharing the latest happenings at the NTSB, and lessons we can take away.
See you there!
