Summary
Women have been flying planes ever since there have been planes to fly, but, with a few notable exceptions, they have not been visible or well known. Tenacious, determined and sometimes fearless, Kathy Mexted shares the stories of ten extraordinary Australian women compelled to take to the skies. You will meet trailblazers like Nancy Bird Walton, Deborah Wardley, who was told by Ansett that women couldn't be pilots, and Gaby Kennard, the first Australian woman to fly solo around the world. Others are perhaps less known, but as flyers of Spitfires, Tiger Moths, Cessnas and fighter jets, their stories are just as extraordinary. Packed with drama, adventure and sometimes heartbreak, this rivetting book is a salute to those women who refused to keep their feet on the ground
