The Orange County Cadet Squadron is pleased to welcome Dr. Alison Chalker Air Race Classic Pilot Member of the 99s. Alison Chalker (Moorestown, NJ) has been a pilot since 1990, and is a member of Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of The Ninety-Nines.
She has a Commercial pilot’s license, single-engine land, with an instrument rating, complex, high-performance and tailwheel endorsements.
Alison is a general aviation pilot who flies for fun and has more than 1500 hours flown. She has a four seat single engine Cessna 182, and enjoys flying to meet friends for lunch around the East coast region; taking passengers for airplane rides to raise funds for the Chapter scholarships in our annual Pennies-a-Pound event; and flying her husband Ray and dogs Einstein and Piper to visit friends and family around the country.
Her favorite aviation activity is the Air Race Classic. In this annual adventure, teams of two women fly a four day, 2000 nautical mile cross-country route that is different every year, competing against their own handicap.
Alison works in the pharmaceutical industry and moved to the US from the UK in 1996. Over the last 30 years, she has worked with teams to help develop new drugs for infectious diseases, cardiovascular conditions, and neuropsychiatric illnesses.
Her local 99’s chapter will also be in attendance!
Please come prepared with questions and have your camera on.
