      Aviation Adventure Speaker Series: Sharon “Betty” Preszler and Kate “Jiga” Lowe Discuss Life in the United States Air Force

      Kate “Jiga” Lowe earned a highly coveted pilot training slot in the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training program, a direct pipeline into fighter aircraft. She flew the T-37 and T-38, earning her wings and the opportunity to fly the F-16 Viper.
