Though too often overlooked in the roster of daredevils who piloted early aircraft, women aviators have claimed the skies since the dawn of aviation, achieving breathtaking aerial feats, triumphing in air-to-air combat, and leaving the atmosphere behind to fly into space. This oversized tribute includes stirring profiles and page filling photographic portraits of dozens of women flyers. Whether in airships, airplanes, jets, or rockets, women like Marie Marvingt, Amelia Earhart, Bessie Coleman, Hélène Boucher, Hanna Reitsch, Marina Raskova, Jackie Cochran, and Sally Ride proved their courage, skill, determination, and composure to be unrivaled in the air.
