Women in aviation – It’s no longer a man’s world?

It was only as recent as 1909 that Baroness Raymonde De Laroche became the first female pilot to fly solo.

However, it would take another 25 years before the first female co-pilot of a commercial aircraft was able to break into this male dominated industry. Emily Howell Warner then had to persevere for another 42 years before finally becoming the first female captain of a commercial aircraft in 1976.
