Exhibitions - High Flying Women – Pioneering Aviators

1st April until 24th September - Cranwell

Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre will kickstart their new season with an exhibition paying tribute to female aviators from around the world. The Centre’s forthcoming exhibition, High Flying Women – Pioneering Aviators, will open to the public telling the stories of female aviators giving visitors the chance to discover these remarkable women and their love of flight, speed, adventure and service for their countries. The exhibition also examines their struggles and rebellion against the conventions of their respective times, in order to realise their dreams; and how they fearlessly took to the air when aviation was a far greater risk than it is today. It will also show that wealth or indeed a lack of it was not an inhibitor of their ambitions.
