Last year, Keith O’Brien was the keynote speaker at the terminus of this year’s Air Race Classic hosted by Katahdin Wings. During his presentation he mentioned his Book FLY Girls would be released soon. It’s now available.
FLY GIRLS tells the forgotten story of women fighting for the right to fly and race airplanes in the 1920s and ’30s — and then ultimately beating the men at their own game.

“Mr. O’Brien, a former reporter for the Boston Globe working in the tradition of ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘The Girls of Atomic City,’ has recovered a fascinating chapter not just in feminism and aviation but in 20th-century American history.” – Wall Street Journal

“A riveting account that puts us in the cockpit with Amelia Earhart and other brave women who took to the skies in the unreliable flying machines of the ‘20s and ‘30s.” – People Magazine

“Let’s call it the Hidden Figures rule: If there’s a part of the past you thought was exclusively male, you’re probably wrong. Case in point are these stories of Amelia Earhart and other female pilots who fought to fly.”—Time Magazine
