#STEM ROLE MODEL EXHIBITING THE EXCITING REAL-WORLD CAREER APPLICATIONS OF STEM
SALES DIRECTOR, JET TRANSACTIONS
Sydney Zacsek’s love for aviation sparked at the age of thirteen following her first glider flight. That experience ignited a lifelong passion while opening her eyes to a new industry.
Switching gears to fixed wing airplanes, Sydney took her first solo flight at age sixteen. Shortly after, she received her Private Pilot’s License in a Cessna 172 aircraft. Time away from the sky was spent as a standout on the high school Varsity Golf Team and racing dirt bikes competitively in the desert. Turning passion into purpose, Sydney balanced work at a noncommercial airport while receiving a B.S. Degree in Aviation Administration from Cal State Los Angeles. Determined to further utilize her degree, she worked her way up at a leading business aviation company where she gained experience in FBO services, Aircraft Management, Maintenance, Avionics and Jet Charter.
Years later, Sydney is now the Sales Director at a respected Private Jet Firm specializing in Sales and Acquisitions of Aircraft. Her responsibilities include industry intelligence by conducting market research, valuing planes, and identifying client goals to match the best aircraft for their mission and budget. She is also a member of the National Business Aviation Administration and The Ninety-Nines, who help foster the advancement of female pilots through education, scholarships and mutual support.
