8 famous female aviators: Fabulous flying women
Hard to narrow the list, to be sure. The Naval Aviation Museum in FL is opening a new display on female aviators in March, 2013. I am working with Jerrie Mock to republish her book, Three Eight Charlie, which will be available in April, 2013. Let's work together to continue to honor our heroes and inspire the next generation!

Curiously absent is Lydia Litvyak. She was a Russian fighter pilot during WWII, one of only two women to achieve "ace" status, and the highest scoring (she was credited with 12 German aircraft destroyed).
Its a shame that Beryl Markham was not included. A pioneering aviator who was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic East to West. She wrote a book about here flying days in Kenya call "West With the Night"
