The ideas shared at ”European Solidarity in Action” conference by the organizers and guests helped us to realize how important solidarity between people is and how valuable are people who passionately dedicate their lives for the good of those around them. Simona Maierean is such an example, being the first Romanian woman able to fly a supersonic plane.
In April 2020, Simona Maierean was at the helm of the C-17 Globe master aircraft and, after a mission that involved approximately 40 hours of flight, brought to Romania 100,000 protective suits from South Korea.
Lt -commander Simona Maierean graduated the “Henri Coandă” Air Force Academy in 2007, obtained the military pilot’s license in 2008 at the “Aurel Vlaicu” Application School, Boboc and was assigned to the 86th Fetești Air Base. In 2012, he decided to switch to transport aircraft and became a pilot on the C 27 J Spartan aircraft at Base 90 Otopeni Air Transport. Starting with 2017, she is part of the Strategic Air Transport Wing Group within the Strategic Aircraft Capability program. https://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simona_Maierean
