Famous Women of Aviation

Aviation history is full of heroes, inventors, explorers and challengers, and mostly men.  While most people can identify a handful of women who have been a part of aviation history, few realize how many there really are.  This course will explore and delve into the little recognized world of famous women who have made major contributions to aviation history.  The Joyce M. Corrigan Women Flight Gallery at the Pima Air and Space Museum recognizes women’s roles in military, commercial and civil aviation which you may want to visit as a follow-up to this course.  The museum’s Beech Bonanza and Lear 23, both formerly owned and flown by women are a highlight of the exhibit in the Main Hangar.

Presenter:  Chuck Stump, five year aviation history instructor at Saddlebrook’s ILR.  He worked for many years at Cessna Aircraft Company.
