This new book is packed with powerful words from women whose aviation and space exploits have made them "household names" in air and aerospace history. But the book also includes inspiring stories about brave women aviators and female aircrew members about whom not enough has been written. Famous or forgotten, their stories are collected in easy-to-read vignettes or quotations from which future generations of young women will find inspiration to chart their own course into the skies and even into outer space. This book is full of practical career and life tips from trailblazing women in all of the many careers in aviation and aerospace. These are “her stories” about women who possessed not only flying or executive talent but also true grit to take their place in an industry in which women were not always welcome. These are authentic stories that will inspire women to take to the skies via any number of aviation and space-related careers. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Women in Aviation International to inspire a new generation of Sky Stars.
