A cacophony and potpourri of pictures and writings about the first women aviators – the aviatrices – from the first flight of a woman in control of a flying machine during 1900’s through to the 1930’s.

Only a few years in which women were not only heard but seen to be a pending force in their pursuit of equality with men.

The ups, the downs, the thrills and spills, their lives and loves, which all go to paint a powerful picture of the fairer yet powerful sex, surprising the world with their exploits and goals.

It’s all here to view and savour, as well as allowing you the reader to comment and contribute to the continuing story of the women pioneers of aviation. If there were ever alpha females in the early years of the 20th Century, these are they.

GIRLS ALOFT – Those magnificent girls in their flying machines.
