About Elizabeth Sommer

Aviatrix, Flight Attendant, Entrepreneur, and Wing Walker!

Elizabeth “Beth” Sommer fell in love with flying one summer day in her 18th year in a blue and white Stearman biplane over Virginia.  Excited about heading to William and Mary in the fall, she thought she could squeeze flying into her schedule at the Williamsburg – Jamestown Airport.  It wasn’t as easy as it sounded, and after graduation she found herself on a different path in aviation as a career flight attendant for American Airlines.  Tragedies and triumphs have defined her flying passion ever since, and she has just recently returned to flying inside, and outside, the airplane.  Come hear about her favorite Experimental aircraft, and her flight journey.
