Rucsandra Mihai, Vice President


My name is Rucsandra Magdalena Mihai and I am founder of Train Aviation, and a certified International aviation trainer.

I’ve been working in the airline industry for the last 33 years. I have a bachelor degree in Marketing and Marketing Communication and a master in Management and Business Communication.

I am a former flight attendant, with hands-on experience, who has flown for over 20.000 hours in the air, with a background in commercial and business aviation.

After working in different positions within the airline industry, from the flight attendant, flight instructor, and inflight auditor, corporate flight attendant, I went on to become a recruiter and aviation trainer.

I run a business aviation agency, TRAIN AVIATION, in Bucharest-Romania, where I am conducting training for future corporate flight attendants. We offer services to both candidates seeking for a job, and clients looking to hire the right person. Based on my experience, my passion for aviation, and a strong commitment to my work, I am guiding, motivating, training, and mentoring other people on how to optimise their skills and add significant value to any organisation.

Kristen Stimpert, Treasurer


Before I began my aviation career I built and operated an event management company in Northern California after obtaining my business degree from Miami University in Ohio.  I ran all aspects of my business and wore many hats including handling all billing, accounting, bookkeeping, sales and event production.  I was inspired by one of your current members, Kim Kissh, to join WCA and would love for the opportunity to be an integral part of your organization utilizing both my business background combined with my current aviation career path.  Although I currently work as a CFI and Assistant General Manager at a large FBO, my goal is to connect with other like minded and driven women in corporate aviation and obtain a position with an incredible company growing my career as a pilot. It would be an honor to serve for WCA and I’m grateful for the consideration.
