“Women in Aviation during WWII”

presented by Bill Albers, WWII Aviation Historian


During World War II women were recruited to be aviators. In the US and Great Britain, they served as non-combat ferrying pilots and in some countries they performed in combat. The lecture will cover their experiences and contributions to the war efforts and give them recognition for their service performed. The WASPs were part of the group of 1100 women aviators who delivered 12,652 airplanes between September 1942 and December 1944.
