Taylor among All-Female Flight Crew

An all-female flight crew took to the skies in an HH-60M Black Hawk helicopter to participate in a fly-over for the 3rd Infantry Division change of command ceremony at Fort Stewart, GA, on June 21.

Pilots and flight paramedics from the 2nd Battalion, 3rd General Support Aviation Battalion, 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade, 3rd ID, geared up just like they would any other flight, but this flight was unique to them. It was the crew’s first time participating in an all-female flight.

The crew consisted of two HH-60M Black Hawk helicopter pilots, Chief Warrant Officer 4 Natasha Ryan and Chief Warrant Officer 2 Shelby Taylor, and two flight paramedics, Sgt. Heather Kicki and Sgt. Chelsey Pcolar.

Kicki, a flight paramedic, said the flight was not about busting stereotypes or challenging the status quo, but rather about showing people what women can do in the U.S. Army.
