Julie E. Clark (born June 27, 1948 in Hayward, California) is an aerobatic air show pilot and former commercial airline pilot. She started her commercial flying career with Golden West Airlines as a first officer and ended it in 2003 as a Northwest Airlines Airbus A320 Captain. She was one of the first female pilots to work for a major airline.[1] She has been voted as Performer of the Year several times for her performance in air shows.[1]

Clark has 40 years of flight experience[2] and 30,000 accident-free hours[2] to her name and flies an average of 20 air shows a year in her Beechcraft T-34 Mentor, currently sponsored by Juice Plus.[3]

Clark's father, Captain Ernest Clark, was also an airline pilot. He was murdered in 1964 by a suicidal passenger on Pacific Air Lines Flight 773. All crew and passengers were killed as a result of the passenger shooting both pilots, then himself, causing the plane to crash. Her mother's death just a year earlier, and her father's subsequent death increased her determination to fly.[4]
