    The SFBAA will be hosting its "Target Breakfast" for Women in Aviation on Friday, May 31, in Fort Lauderdale. The breakfast will be taking place at the Jet Runway Cafe at the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) from 8:00 am to 10:00 am.

    We are proud to present Lieutenant Colonel (ret) Christine Mau as our Guest Speaker. She will be speaking about her life as a US Air Force fighter pilot.  She was the first woman to fly the F-35 in 2015.  She also led the first combat mission planned, briefed, launched, and flown entirely by women in 2011 while flying the F-15E. She served for 20 years in the USAF culminating as Deputy Commander, 33rd Operations Group, Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.

    During her career she also stood up the first and only Air Defense Aggressor Squadron and served as an Instructor Aggressor at Nellis AFB while she started her family. After two children and two Master’s degrees, she served as the 366th Fighter Wing Director of Staff and Director of Operations for the Royal Singaporean Air Force 428th Fighter Squadron at Mountain Home Air Force Base. Prior to her final assignment, she served as Commander of the 4th Operations Support Squadron at Seymour Johnson AFB where she led 285 airmen in the Air Force’s most diverse squadron. As the 33rd Operations Group Deputy Commander she assisted the commander in leading a 390 personnel group responsible for F-35 formal training.

    Christine was an instructor and evaluator pilot with more than 2800 flight hours and has flown over 500 combat hours in Operations Southern Watch, Northern Watch, Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. She currently works as a F-35 Contract Instructor Pilot for Lockheed Martin at Eglin AFB, teaching simulator and academics to F-35A and F-35C pilots.  She has had a remarkable career and we are extremely excited to have her share her story.
