Geneva Public Library District - Meeting Room

Join Rebecca Tulloch, a certified FAA pilot, as she tells the story of the Fly Girls of WWII and their role in the war effort.

In 1942, the United States faced a severe shortage of pilots, and leaders gambled on an experimental program to help fill the void by training women to fly military aircraft so male pilots could be released for combat duty overseas. Over 1100 women served their country during World War II as members of the Women Airforce Service Pilots, WASP, flying every military aircraft flown by the American Forces from the PT-17 Stearman to the P51 Mustang and B-17 Flying Fortress. Air ferry missions, target practice for artillery crews, and aircraft maintenance shakedown flights were just a few of the missions these American heroines fly. Join Rebecca Tulloch, a certified FAA pilot, as she tells the story of the WASP.
