Hi everyone! I’m Maddy and I’m beginning my sophomore year here at ERAU Prescott. I’m an Aeronautical Science (Fixed-Wing) major with a concentration in Airline Operations, minoring in Meteorology, and I’m currently working toward my commercial pilot’s license. All my life I’ve been in love with all things aviation, and it’s my dream and goal to fly for a major airline such as Southwest. Being at Embry-Riddle has been an amazing experience so far, and I’m so proud to say that I’m attending the most well-known aviation university in the world.
I grew up in sunny Orange County, California, and I’ve got to say Prescott is just as scenic as the coastlines of SoCal. At first, it was tough going from sea level to 5000 feet, but now I can say that I’m fully adjusted to the mile-high city. It seems like just yesterday I was transitioning into life at Embry-Riddle Prescott. Time has truly “flown” by! (pun intended).
Besides taking classes and flight training, I’m also a second-year member of the Golden Eagles Flight Team, a member of the APLA Ace Club, a member of Women in Aviation and a member of the Archery Club. There’s never a dull moment in my life, but that’s just how I like it!
I personally invite you to follow me on my sophomore year at Riddle. I’ll be sharing more about my activities and adventures in the near future, so you can see what life is like here at Embry-Riddle Prescott. Let’s embark on this journey together!
We love you & are so proud of you Maddy! Love, Your SoCal Family
Congratulations! I hope to one day attend ERAU as well, and participate in some of the same activities you have discussed.
