Product Description

Review

This is a timely book. As a Canadian astronaut, I have had the privilege of working with astronauts Roberta Bondar and Julie Payette. I am proud to have worked with such accomplished women and I am delighted that Elizabeth Muir has penned this timely tribute to Canadian women in the sky, including two who made it all the way to space. Along the way, these women made all Canadians proud. True pioneers, everyone of them. (Marc Garneau, MP, former astronaut)

This is a lot of material to pack into 175 pages and so the stories told about each person are short and to the point. The book makes for fast-paced reading and, while it can easily be read by teens and adults, it might almost be ideal for bed-time stories read to a young aspiring aviator. (COPA Flight)

Offer[s] fascinating insights into an industry that has revolutionized many aspects of life in Canada.

I'm half way through and love this book!! As a student pilot, I really enjoy reading about the female pioneers in the industry. This is a must read for any lady embarking on a career in aviation or flys for recreation.

I bought this book for my father as he was trained as a pilot and air gunner in WW11. He enjoyed the stories immensely.
