RANCHO PALOS VERDES, CA, June 25, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Laura Einsetler has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Ms. Einsetler is a renowned commercial airline pilot who has shared her passion with the public as a writer, speaker, blogger, and media consultant. Her interest in aviation began as a child when she flew as an unaccompanied minor to visit her father twice per year following her parents' divorce. As a teenager, Ms. Einsetler wanted to become a pilot so strongly that she worked three jobs to pay for her flying lessons, beginning at the age of 15, in spite of a lack of support from her parents.
In 1987 she was accepted to the U.S. Air Force Academy, but chose to pursue her education at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) in Daytona Beach, FL. She graduated in 1992 with her Bachelors in Aeronautical Science with a minor in Dispatch. Ms. Einsetler actively competed as a member of the ERAU Precision Flight Team. After college, she became a flight instructor, teaching all levels of flying and ground courses at Trade Winds Aviation at the International Airport in San Jose, California from 1992-1994. From 1984-1987, she served as the Director of Operations for Wanda Collins Airshows, both coordinating and flying aerobatics. She further flourished as a First Officer, and later as a Captain, on large aircraft for Renown Airlines from 1995-1998. Her flying included military contracts, charters, cargo, and international operations. She now flies as a Captain on the Boeing 767 and 757 aircraft for a major U.S. airline.
Ms. Einsetler began her media career in 2016 by blogging at her website, CaptainLaura.com. She provides professional commentary for air travelers on aviation as well as other topics such as health and child development to national and regional outlets. She has been an active guest speaker since 1990. Her appearances as an aviation consultant include CBS and CNN national news, articles in the NY Times, as well as radio and television specials. She was recently submitted for an Emmy Award for her work co-hosting a live special for the KRON 4 2019 San Francisco Fleet Week. Ms. Einsetler is the author of two books, "Remove Before Flight" a guidebook to educate and empower air passengers, and "Lost and Found" a personal memoir of the fight to save her son from a mysterious illness in the wake of the post 9/11 devastation.
Supporting charities that boost aviation and protect children are important to Ms.Einsetler. She has links on her website for the Captain Jason Dahl Foundation, Aspiring Youth Organization, and for the Association of the Recovery of Children. She was recognized by the Ninety-Nines International Organization of Women Pilots, receiving the Pilot of the Year Award, and subsequently became President of her University's Ninety-Nines Chapter. She attributes her success to her natural curiosity to learn, drive to continually grow, her high expectations for herself, and the internal strength she gained from surviving a rough past. In the future, Ms. Einsetler hopes to pursue making movies, a series, and/or a docuseries, enjoy more speaking engagements, and inspiring others to be resilient and persevering in the face of challenges.
