In 1912, airplanes looked like bicycles with wings. Only men flew these scary new machines. When a spirited young woman named Harriet Qimby decided to learn to fly, everyone said it would be too dangerous. But Harriet tried it anyway! She was the first woman in the United States to earn her pilot's license. Soon the whole country was just wild about her! Harriet loved the attention and designed a purple flight suit to stand out even more. Before long she was the first woman to fly across the English Channel. What daring adventure would Harriet try next?
