Christine Mau

Lt Col Christine Mau was the first woman to fly the Department of Defense's newest fighter, 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. She is passionate about aviation and continues to fly her Vans RV-6 and anything else she can get her hands on.

Originally from Thousand Oaks, California, Christine entered the Air Force in May 1997 after graduating from the USAF Academy with a degree in Biology. She graduated Euro-NATO joint Jet Pilot Training in 1999 as a Distinguished Graduate and then went on to fly the F-15E at RAF Lakenheath, Seymour Johnson AFB, and Mountain Home AFB.

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 33d 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 pilots.

Taryn Fleet

Taryn Fleet has flown the Airbus for Allegiant Air (based in Sanford) for three years. Before flying for Allegiant, Taryn flew SAABs for Silver Airways in Tampa for two years. Taryn has always loved flying and she began taking lessons when she was fourteen years old at a small airport in Pennsylvania.

Taryn majored in Aircraft Systems at LeTourneau University in East Texas, where she also received her aircraft mechanics ratings. When she is not flying, Taryn can be found chasing her three boys around her house in Winter Springs, or running trails in the area!
