I love it when people tell me or send me info about amazing women pilots, especially when there’s a taildragger involved. Check out the link sent to me by Ray Johnson of his earlier interview with Margaret Ringenberg; pilot with +40,000 hours, many time Powder Puff Air Racer, World War II ferry pilot, instructor, and who in 1994 few around the world!

    What an inspiration to us all. A pilot that took the skies humbly yet with dedication. She was true to herself and her passion. I will now read her book because she is what fuels aviatrix of today. Thank you Margaret. And, thanks to Fly/In Cruise/in Video Magazine. We need women historic aviation stories that strengthen our female foundation within the flying community. And I don’t like knitting either! Ha.

    She was a delight to talk to and an absolute inspiration! I met her at Oshkosh, & bought a signed copy of her book (which I’ve read more than once). She passed away during Oshkosh 2008. Blue Skies, Margaret!

    Thanks for posting Margaret’s story…she is so “understated” and humble. I love it … “knitting wasn’t for me!”
