Brigitte Jacobson was comfortable in the sky. The wind beneath her metal wings as she soared between clouds brought her peace. She didn’t expect to become a lover of planes, yet it became one of the biggest catalysts in her life – and even in death. After Brigitte passed away in 2019, her friends and family founded Empowerment Through Aviation as a tribute to her memory. The program mentors Baltimore girls and young women with the skills they need to become pilots and aims to diversify the aviation industry.
