From the time of earliest flying machines, women have looked to the sky and dreamed of flight. In New England, the setting for many milestones in aviation history, bold and courageous women have worked tirelessly over the past century to overcome the skepticism of those of who believed that they had no place in the air.
This exhibit tells the inspirational stories of those trailblazing New England women and their contributions to the history and industry of aviation. In times of war and peace, they have overcome societal barriers, set and broken records, and risked life and limb to prove that female aviators were just as capable as their male counterparts.
Their accomplishments serve to inspire the next generation of women aviators, who will carry their pioneering spirit forward into the future. We welcome you to join us in celebrating the grand opening of this new permanent exhibit.
