International Women’s Day celebrating Florence Taylor 

On International Women’s Day this year we honour the female pioneers of aviation who have flown through the glass ceiling.
Back in 1909 Florence Taylor became the first woman in Australia to navigate a heavier-than-air craft. Fast-forward to 2015 and Jetstar Airways appointed Captain Georgina Sutton as the first female Chief Pilot in the southern hemisphere, and only the second in the world. 

 

To all the women in aviation and their supporters, we salute you.

We mourn a fellow daughter of the sky.

With great admiration for Yu Xu and with sadness we mourn the tragic accident that ended her life and a career she loved. We would like to extend our condolences to her family and her co-pilot. She choose a career that made her heart sing  and her legacy and inspiration will live on.

Such a sad time for aviation as we say goodbye to Yu Xu, Here is an excerpt from the BBC:-

China is mourning the death of Yu Xu, the country’s first female J-10 jet pilot who was killed during an aerobatic training session on Saturday.

Ms Yu was hit by the wing of another aircraft after ejecting from her plane, Chinese media reported.

The domestically made jet crashed into a field in Tangshan, Hebei province.

“We have lost a comrade and the air force feels great pain and sadness for Yu Xu’s sacrifice,” air force spokesman Shen Jinke said.

According to reports, Ms Yu was forced to eject from her plane after it collided with another.

Another pilot, 35, survived the crash. He is said to have been her co-pilot and has already been discharged from hospital, the Beijing News reported.

The black box and the engine of the aircraft have been retrieved and an investigation is underway.
