Bloggers and women in aviation

Arcadia-born Aviation Pioneer Harriet Quimby

The blog is called Betsie Bay: Somewhere north of routine.

The author gives no reason why she decided to profile Quimby today, except that she was born in Michigan... still, it's nice to see a pioneer woman pilot get some press today.


A woman's aviation blog from France, run by a guy named Denis, had an article on the WASP today.

Hey, thanks for the link over. Our site is about an area that includes the village of Arcadia where Harriet Quimby was born.

She moved away at a young age, but I was thinking that the tradition of soaring & sailplanes in the area had a part in instilling a love of flight. This morning I thought a little more about one of my favorite views in the world which is just north of Arcadia and wondered if that two might have made a young girl's imagination soar.
