Women Pilots Take Part in Living History Series

Florida’s aviation attraction, Fantasy of Flight, celebrates courageous WASPs – Women Airforce Service Pilots – in honor of Women's History Month.

Two women pilots, part of the WASP program, talk business before a flight. The photo is part of an exhibit at Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, Florida.
Avenger hosted both military and civilian flight instructors, male and female. Many women served as civilian flight instructors for the WASP program. Some female civilian instructors ended up joining the WASPs after seeing many of their students go on to fly fighters and bombers.
