Gone are the days when the aviation industry was predominantly for men. For a long time, women were not allowed to take up positions in the aviation world. The female gender was regarded as too weak to fly a plane. Against all the odds, confident women like Amy Johnson who were determined to pursue their dreams of flying a plane broke the mold and made their goals a reality. This article is written in remembrance of Amy Johnson, whose birthday is on the 1st of July 1903, and other pioneering women of aviation.
