Cessna 182 at Redcliffe airport with Little Miss Naughty

       This site is dedicated to learning and exploring the world of aviation
     The story so far on how it's become a valued aspect of my life ...


              Flying is the best possible thing for women.

               — Baroness Raymonde de Laroche of France, first licensed woman pilot, regards receiving her license, 8 March 1910

               Flying does not rely so much on strength, as on physical and mental co-ordination.

             — Elise Deroche, first lady to solo an airplane.

             The air is the only place free from prejudices.

          — Bessie Coleman, the first African-American woman to become an airplane pilot, 1921.

                Women must try to do things as men have tried, when they fail their failure must be but a challenge to others.

                    — Amelia Earhart, in the New York Times, 29 July 1928.


               More than anything else the sensation is one of perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains

       every nerve to the utmost, if you can conceive of such a combination.

   — Wilbur Wright

              The exhilaration of flying is too keen, the pleasure too great, for it to be neglected as a sport.

 — Orville Wright

              I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things . . .

                — Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

              The Wright Brothers created the single greatest cultural force since the invention of writing.

             The airplane became the first World Wide Web, bringing people, languages, ideas, and values together.

                                 — Bill Gates, CEO, Microsoft Corporation.
