            Women have always been involved with aviation and this book examines the roles of British and American women throughout the history of flight. It will highlight the earliest female aviators and women working in wartime munition factories, as well as the trailblazers of the inter-...war period such as Amy Johnson and Amelia Earhart. The experience of women in aviation during the Second World War, including those flying with the Air Transport Auxiliary and the American Women Airforce Service Pilots, will also be examined. The post-war years are also covered and emphasise the growth in participation by women in both civil and military spheres of aviation. By the last decades of the twentieth century, women had progressed even further, undertaking many of the jobs previously reserved for men, including space flight and combat flying.

            The Propeller under the Bed: A Personal History of Homebuilt Aircraft (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            On July 25, 2010, Arnold Ebneter flew across the country in a plane he designed and built himself, setting an aviation world record for aircraft of its class. He was eighty-two at the time and the flight represented the culmination of a dream he'd cultivated since his childhood i...n the 1930s. Eileen Bjorkman - herself a pilot and aeronautical engineer - frames her father's journey from teenage airplane enthusiast to Air Force pilot and Boeing engineer in the context of the rise, near extermination, and ongoing interest in homebuilt aircraft in the United States. She gives us a glimpse into life growing up in a flying family with two pilots for parents, a family plane named Charlie, and quite literally, a propeller under her parents' bed. From early airplane designs serialized in magazines to the annual Oshkosh Fly-in where you can see experimental aircraft on display, Bjorkman offers a personal take on the history of building something in your garage that you can actually (and legally) fly as well as how the homebuilt aircraft movement has contributed to aviation and innovation in America.
