#HAPPYFATHERSDAY #お父さんありがとう ~父から娘へ、ユナイテッドの翼を~ ユナイテッドの女性パイロットとして活躍する、タメラ・デミックにとって、父の存在とは・・・? ユナイテッドのパイロットとして活躍していた父、ランディ。いつしか「父の隣で、副操縦士として一緒に空を飛びたい」と憧れを抱いていました。 タメラは、17歳で自家用パイロットのライセンスを取得し、大学では航空技術を専攻。そんな中、2001年秋彼女が大学2年生の時、航空業界は突如不況に陥り、ユナイテッドでの夢を一時断念し別の道に進みました。 13年後、航空業界に再び活気が戻り始めたころ、やはり「父の副操縦士として飛びたい」と念願のユナイテッドに入社し研修を重ねます。 そしてついに、父ランディからタメラへ、副操縦士として合格したことが告げられたのです。さらに父ランディは就任セレモニーにて、その手でタメラに直接翼を与え彼女をユナイテッドのパイッロットとして迎えました。 それは、トレーニングチーム、スタッフ一同からデミック親子へのサプライズプレゼント。 最近では、機長の父と副操縦士の娘が一緒に操縦するファミリーフライトも実現させました。 父の背中を追い続けたタメラとそれをサポートをした父は、永遠のユナイテッドファミリーなのです。
