In recognition of national Women’s History Month, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) Aviation History Program presents the unique and fascinating story of the women who flew in WW II as members of the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), by Natalie Stewart-Smith, adjunct faculty ERAU College of Arts and Sciences.  Her thesis on the WASP was the very first academic study of this organization.  The study is based on extensive research and numerous personal interviews, including with WASP founder Jacqueline Cochran. The military contribution of women fliers during World War I and their aviation activities during the years between WWI and WWII, a seldom heard part of the WASP story, is foundational.  For more information about The Women Ariforce Service Pilots (WASP) of World War II, a free, public event March 18 at 7:00 PM, call professor Manderfield at 928-777-6985.
