Captain Tammie Jo Shults, the widely acclaimed pilot who brought Southwest Flight 1380 in for a successful, heroic emergency landing in 2018, headlines the fall installment of the Paup Lecture Series. The event will be hosted by the Jane Nelson Institute for Women’s Leadership at Texas Woman’s University.

Shults will share how her life of preparation, steady leadership and faith led to a crucial moment in the cockpit April 17, 2018. Following an engine explosion at high altitude that caused multiple system failures, her Southwest Boeing 737 plunged more than 18,000 feet in the first five minutes alone. Shults successfully landed the airliner in Philadelphia, saving the lives of 148 passengers and crew.
