About the talk:

You’ve seen and heard the fighter jets blazing through the Singapore skies, but did you know that one of them is piloted by a Michigan Wolverine? Major Nah Jinping is the first and only female operational F-15 pilot in RSAF. Join us as she discusses how she got to where she is today, her experience as a woman in an elite squad of predominantly men, and what it’s really like to fly an F-15SG. Join us for high tea and networking from 6:30, enjoy the main event at 7:00 and stick around for a raffle drawing of some great prizes at 8:15!

Nah Jinping is currently in the air plans department of the RSAF, and has been flying the F-15SG for over three years. She has over 500 hours of flight hours to date, and has trained in both Australia and the United States.

Jinping is a graduate of St Hilda’s Primary, Anglican High, Raffles Junior College, and Nottingham University. She has a master’s degree in learning technologies from the University of Michigan.
