Dr. DeYoung has over 8 years of writing and aviation experience. As an Aviation Analyst at PAI Consulting, she uses her aviation expertise and analytical skills to analyze and categorize client data. Dr. DeYoung supports aviation directed studies by analyzing data, organizing her findings, and drafting technical studies and other reports and written documentation. She also uses her organizational skills and experience to support PAI’s clients by tracking and organizing records and other supplemental information.

Dr. DeYoung has been involved with numerous aviation outreach and safety projects. As an Advanced Ground Instructor, she was responsible for ensuring the aeronautical knowledge of Dover Air Force Base’s Aero Club members, JROTC detachment, and student pilots. She also developed and organized several outreach programs to help young people explore careers in aviation, learn the fundamentals of flight, and develop an awareness for flight safety. Furthermore, in her capacity as an English Professor, Dr. DeYoung pioneered a series of joint courses with Delaware State University’s Aviation Department that bridged Delaware State’s Private Pilot curriculum with their First Year Composition program. By building these courses, Dr. DeYoung was able to help aspiring professional pilots focus on industry affairs and safety as they developed their pilot certifications.
