Marnie Munns

Marnie juggles a career as a captain at a commercial airline and motherhood with 2 children.

Marnie wanted to be a pilot from early childhood, following in her grandfather’s footsteps. “We travelled a lot when we were children and my parents used to say: Go and see the pilot and see what they do!” This set her on course to be one of only 4% of female commercial airline pilots, after she completed her degree in Psychology.

She has campaigned for equal pay and opportunities for women within her industry, including giving talks at events and schools encouraging girls to consider the aviation industry as a career path and inspiring girls not to allow preconceptions and gender stereotypes to limit their career choices.

In her spare time, Marnie loves horseriding with her children.
