THE 100 GREATEST WOMEN IN AVIATION

Guide coverA hundred years ago the first women took to the air as passengers in powered aircraft, flown by luminaries such as Wilbur Wright.“The 100 Greatest Women in Aviation” is a series of biographies, highlighting the first passengers (Therese Peltier and Mrs Hart O Berg in 1908) through to aspiring present day record breakers such as Jo Kelland, who is aiming to be the youngest ever female airline pilot and Aisha Al Mansoori and Salma Al Balooshi. They made history last year when they became the first female pilots to be recruited by Etihad Airways from the UAE. The book follows progress from early wood and canvas bi-planes to the space age. International in scope, the book features well-known names such as Amelia Earhart and Amy Johnson, as well as forgotten heroines, like Li Xiapeng and Hilda Yan, young Chinese pilots who barnstormed America during World War II to protest against the Japanese occupation of their country.
