Mary Feik, Marc 9, 1924 - Jun 10, 2016
After overhauling her first automobile engine at 13, Mary Feik turned to aircraft engines and military aircraft at 18, eventually teaching aircraft maintenance to crew chiefs and mechanics for the U.S. Army Air Force in 1942.
Feik is credited with becoming the first woman engineer in research and development in the Air Technical Service Command’s Engineering Division.
In addition to logging more than 5,000 hours as a B-29 flight engineer, engineering observer and pilot in fighter, attack, bomber, cargo and training aircraft, she also designed high-performance and jet fighter pilot transition trainers as well as aircraft maintenance trainers.
Not just noted as a pilot but also a writer, Feik authored pilot training manuals and technical engineering reports that were distributed throughout the armed forces.
She's accomplished so much but here's what she says about her proudest moment, in 2003: "My ultimate honor [is] the Civil Air Patrol cadet achievement created in my name."
Oregon is one of six states, or "wings," that comprise the Pacific Region of Civil Air Patrol -- the official auxiliary of the United States Air Force. Civil Air Patrol (CAP), headquartered at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, under the Air Education and Training Command , is a non-profit, federally-chartered volunteer organization dedicated to serving the people of the United States through its three missions: Emergency Services, Aerospace Education and the Cadet Program.
