Bettina Edelstein

A former New York Times editor, Bettina moved to Vermont in 2012 to learn how to work on aircraft. As an A&P mechanic, she spent 6 years at Pratt & Whitney. She’s also been writing a memoir about learning to fly again after years away from airplanes and what that taught her about living. Her aviation experiences include flying the Hudson River Corridor in NYC, meeting one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen and sitting in the cockpit of a Spitfire.
