During college Mary Kirby had aspirations of teaching erotic Victorian literature at Berkeley. Before she had the opportunity to try her luck out in California, however, Mary landed a job as an air transport journalist in Washington DC. She was quickly bitten by the travel bug and began to take a serious interest in all things aviation.
Mary has now been navigating the aviation world for a decade, including a nine-year stint at Air Transport Intelligence and sister Flight International. As a senior editor at Flight, Mary covers North American major and regional carriers and regional aircraft manufacturers in the Americas. She has also developed expertise in the in-flight entertainment (IFE) and Caribbean aviation sectors.
An Irish/American residing on the outskirts of Philadelphia in “Amish Country”, Mary has found a happy outlet in the blogosphere for her newsy posts and slightly cheeky sense of humour.
