Rene Banglesdorf, CEO, Charlie Bravo Aviation, author of Crushing Mediocrity: 10 Ways to Rise Above the Status Quo
“The aviation industry has a lot to offer young women—a chance to see the world, build an exciting career, and make a major impact on our future. This book is a fun and well-written peek into what’s available.”

Jill Long, aviator, owner of Ragged Edge Aviation

Aviation: Cool Women Who Fly has outstanding examples of ‘cool women’ who followed in Besse Coleman’s footsteps and ‘refused to take “No” for an answer!’ I look forward to seeing those who read this book flying off my wingtip someday!”

Praise for other titles in the Girls in Science series:

Booklist New SERIES NONFICTION SHOWCASE
“The women featured in this Girls in Science series share more than a passion for science, technology, engineering, and math. Starting at a young age all were discouraged from pursuing paths in STEM fields. These books seek to rectify this oversight by encouraging today’s girls to consider special topics in science and technology. Each begins with a brief definition and historical overview of the topic before focusing on the livers, careers, successes, and influences of three distinguished women scientists or engineers. . . Numerous sidebars include further background information, mini profiles of more prominent females in STEM, and thought-provoking questions. A worth addition to STEM collections.”
