Air-Crazy, Too: More fascinating stories of Canadian women in the air
By Elizabeth Gillan Muir
In the early 1900s, when airplanes were first invented, women weren’t supposed to fly – not even as passengers. But many women persevered and became airplane and glider pilots. They even flew blimps. They became balloonists, skydivers, helicopter and medivac pilots, and even astronauts.
Read new stories about more daring women aviators in Air-Crazy, Too, a supplement to the first book Air-Crazy (translated into French as Libres Comme L’Air)
Award-winning author and historian Elizabeth Gillan Muir presents women who pioneered in Canadian flight, set world records, and continue to contribute to Canadian aviation history.
