Yvonne Trueman, only Bahrainian-licensed pilot

A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about Yvonne Trueman, the 70+-year old woman who is the only person to hold a pilot's license issued by the island micro-nation of Bahrain. (Here is a verrrry interesting article about Bahrain which everybody should read - talks about the people, the ruling family, the terror threat)

I just discovered today that I had neglected to include a link to the article I'd been quoting, which gave all her qualifications and accomplishments.

I've written up biographies of her and Sheila Scott (British aviatrix, who flew solo around the world three times, twice in a Piper Commanche, once in a Piper Aztec) and they are posted at the Women Aviators Wiki.
