"This is a must read for those who find it hard to believe that once upon a time women were discouraged from working outside the home at all, much less at an airport or in the cockpit. When you read the stories you realize just how far women in aviation have come, and it really makes you thankful for the women who have gone before and paved the way." General Aviation News - Meg Godlewski

" . . . it allows us to know the women who wore our shoes first; and though the styles have changed the lessons still apply today. Their frustrations, motivations and inspiration and why they continued to fly against headwinds no matter how strong and gusty . . . " The Girls With Wings Blog - Lynda Meeks
