If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?

“I want to talk about quotas for diversity in companies and why they don’t work in all industries.”

My guest today has over 30 years of experience in the Aviation industry, a former international airline pilot who flew the Airbus A330 and A340 worldwide. They are the author of The Complete Airline Pilot Interview Workbook and have experience as a Flight Instructor, Aviation lecturer, expert witness and mentor. They are also the founding partner of the Flightdeck Group, a group of aviation companies specialising in helping people achieve career success through career pathway awareness, interview preparation, career coaching and industry networking. 


You’d be forgiven to think my guest is male - because that’s society’s expectations - still today. And it’s exactly why I’ve got my dear friend Sasha Robinson on the show today. She’s an aviation legend in an industry that still today has less than 5% of women at the top - something I was interested in diving deeper into with her. Sash is passionate about her industry and not only has a stellar career, but she is also the mother of five kids!


Raising five children, including three girls, Sasha has a passion for advancing careers of women in the field of Aviation. A recent career highlight was being involved in the Federal Government's Women in Aviation Initiative, creating an aviation awareness campaign for school and university-aged girls, highlighting incredible career opportunities in the Aviation and Aerospace industries. Sasha’s hard work was recognised at the Australian Aviation Awards recently as the winner of the  2023 Female Aviation Leader of the Year. Let’s meet the formidable, Sasha Robinson
