Featuring Rebecca J. Waddington

Deputy Chief of Flight Operations
NOAA Aviation Operations Center

Commander Waddington made history in August 2018 when she was part of the first all-female flight crew to pilot a NOAA aircraft during a hurricane mission. She made history again in September 2019 as part of NOAA's first all-female three pilot flight team while flying reconnaissance missions over Hurricane Dorian. As a NOAA Commissioned Corps "Hurricane Hunter," Commander Waddington is passionate about serving her country and is proud to be an inspiration for women in aviation.
