Trailblazers: The early women aviators | Life and style | The Guardian

Hi everyone,

A woman I met in graduate school did her thesis on female aviators of the 20th century.  TShe would talk to me about the field of flying women and the challenges they faced to see their dreams soar.  I found it fascinating.

Most people are aware of Amelia Earhart but it’s her mysterious disappearance rather than aviation accomplishments that draws our attention.  This book details the experiences of her sisters in the sky.

For more information about our sisters in the sky have a look at these resources:

Websites:

Women in Aviation

Women in Aviation and Space History

Women Pilots at War

Books:

Joyce Spring, The sky’s the limit : Canadian women bush pilots (2006)

Daring lady flyers : Canadian women in the early years of aviation (1994)

Shirley Render, No place for a lady : the story of Canadian women pilots, 1928-1992 (1992)

Take care,

m.

  1. There’s an organization called Women in Aviation International that has a hall of fame of sorts for women aviators called the Pioneer Hall of Fame. You may want to check that out at http://www.wai.org
