Jacqueline Cochran is one of the most outstanding women in 20th century aviation. During World War II, she recruited women to fly for the British Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), and then returned to the United States to lead the Women's Flying Training Detachment (WFTD) and later became the director of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). She became the first woman to break the sound barrier, in an F-86 Sabre jet aircraft. Her legacy continues today through the thousands of women pilots she inspired.
