2022 Keynote Speaker
Captain Tammie Jo Shults
Captain Shults is a former Southwest Airlines pilot and the captain of the crippled Southwest 1380 flight, which made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after an unexpected engine failure and rapid depressurization. Captain Shults ended her incredible journey with Southwest Airlines in September 2020, with a final commercial flight she regards as “bittersweet."
Captain Shults became a carrier qualified Navy pilot, earning her wings of gold in 1987 at Beeville, Texas. She then served as a flight instructor in the T-2 Buckeye before going on to fly as an electronic aggressor pilot in the A-7 Corsair and then the F/A-18 Hornet. She was one of the first women to go through A-7 weapons training, as well as being one of the first to fly the F/A-18 Hornet. Captain Shults also holds a split degree in PreMed and Agribusiness from MidAmerica Nazarene.
