American Women of Flight

The San Diego Air & Space Museum's exhibit, “American Women of Flight,” honors the contributions to the world of aviation by women. Notable aviatrixes, such as Bessie Coleman, Jacqueline Cochran, Fran Bera, Sally Ride, and many others are featured.  Significant women of flight and the events of their day are cited, from the earliest to the latest, covering more than 100 years of colorful history. Additionally, the nearly ninety year old organization of women pilots known as the 99s gets special treatment -- not just for its who’s-who list of members, but also for the enormous good they have done promoting women of flight throughout the life of the association.

This exhibit can be found outside of the Zable 3D/4D Theater.
