About the Design:
Women of the ATA is dedicated to the 166 women who, from 1940, served in the Air Transport Auxiliary. Flying almost every type of aircraft, their job was to ferry aircraft from factories to maintenance to be made operational. Flying pioneers, these were also the first women to receive equal pay in a government position.
