After a long uphill battle women pilots now enjoy a front office view in airline and corporate airplanes.

Flying Above the Glass Ceiling
Women Pilots Rule! When I started flying in 1966 there were no women airline or military pilots. Just a few weeks ago, I met the latest woman US Air Force Thunderbird. A lot has happened for women pilots in my flying career. Touch the Sky is my story of being an airshow pilot/wingrider flying my Great Lakes biplane and riding outside the wing of a 450 Stearman across the United States and Canada.
