Flying can sometimes be a stressful experience. From airports, to the fear of heights, airplanes are not a fan favorite.The thought of actually leading an aircraft in the air is too overwhelming for some. This is not the case for Rebecca Treis (10). Ever since Treis was young, she has wanted to be in the pilot’s seat.

“My dad used to work at Boeing flying F-15’s. Ever since I was little I have been interested in engineering, and have wanted to work on planes. In eighth grade, I started to wonder about actually flying planes,” Treis said.

Actually flying a plane not only takes skill and talent, it also requires a license and, obviously, a plane. A standard pilot’s license can cost up to $9,000, which for Treis was the biggest obstacle.

“After I was very interested in flying, I began going to air shows and applying to flying organizations in the area to get scholarships to get my pilot license. Now since I have the license, I am going to be flying through Boeing’s hanger. Taking off will not be the hardest part for me, landing is going to definitely be more challenging,” Treis said.

This love of flying is definitely not just a hobby for Treis. She not only plans to continue flying, but to hopefully pursue a career doing what she loves. An airplane pilot is usually the first thing people think of when it comes to flying, but Rebecca is not interested in that field.

“I would like to continue flying in the Air Force. I love the air force academy, I have been looking at it since I first started flying. If military does not work out, I would like to continue commercial flying in some form,” Treis said.
