A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Women in Aviation Collection - The early women in aviation were a rare breed - part thrill seeker, fanatically dedicated, and always pushing the envelope as far as they could. Bessie Coleman 1892-1926. First woman pilot to earn an International Aviation License. Unable to learn to fly in the US, she did it in Paris, from whence her quotation, "I refused to take no for an answer."In the U.S. she taught other black women to fly, promoted aviation, and performed many exhibitions, becoming known as "Queen Bessie." Harriet Quimby 1875-1912 As the first American woman to receive a pilot's license (#37) she was the first woman aviator. While covering an air meet at Belmont Park, NY as a journalist, she became so fascinated that she began instruction, eventually being the first woman to fly the English Channel.Blanche Stuart Scott 1886-1970 Making her first solo flight in 1910, she made her living by stunt flying at county fairs and other small town attractions. The fact that she actually survived to old age made her recollections invaluable to the Air Force Museum at Dayton, Ohio, where she was a special consultant.Jacqueline Cochran 1906-1980 Earning her license in 1932, she went on to achieve an incredible list of firsts, trophies, and accomplishments, including the 1950 Harmon Trophy as the "Aviatrix of the Decade".Amelia Earhart 1898-1937 Learning to fly in 1920, she achieved fame as the first woman to cross the Atlantic as a passenger and accomplished numerous aviation marks. Most remembered for her around the world attempt that ended in her loss in the Pacific in 1937.
