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!"
