First woman to fly the Curti Zefhir

You may remember that a few weeks ago I went to Bologna for work. Well, I am pleased, finally, to be able to share the fruits of my labours that weekend: this article for FLYER Magazine about the amazing new Curti Zefhir helicopter.

This lovely little machine an exciting development for the helicopter world, as it’s a two-seat turbine with a parachute (the first in the world with this innovation). It was already an honour to be asked to fly it – but even more so as I was the first woman to fly it! Here I am with the Curti team, including the two test pilots.

As you can see, the sun was already going down by the time I finally arrived in Bologna, but that made for a beautiful flight.

Just look at that golden evening light. Best time of day to fly!

You can read all about my thoughts on the Zefhir in the actual article, so I’ll keep this short and sweet. Hope you enjoy it (it’s not too technical, I promise).
