AME Conference

Focus under pressure! Carey Lohernz


The first female Naval aviator flying F-14 tomcat was very inspiring in her keynote speech at the AME conference. Some of the key quotes from her speech:

  • “At 8 g’s you weigh 1600  pounds!
  • Everyone on the aircraft carrier has but one goal regardless of what they do;  the safe launching and recovery of aircraft.
  • It’s this extreme focus that allows for 50% turnover every nine months, you have to have great communication and training in place.
  • Intense focus on execution. Not being distracted, because if you lose sight of your competition, you lose the fight.”


“Failure will happen. It’s your choice that matters.Embracing failure leads to collaboration, innovation, and learning.”


“You can fly solo, but we win together.”
