Storyline

The story of Katherine Sui Fun Cheung, who as a teenager emigrated to America where she fell in love with flying and dreamed of becoming a pilot. In the 1930s, she refused to be denied the opportunity to fly an airplane during a period in history when less than 1% of all pilots were women. Defying racial prejudices and gender biases, she earned her pilot's license, and joined the Ninety-Nines, an all-women pilot's club whose members included the legendary Amelia Earhart. Katherine went on to became an adventurous daredevil stunt pilot performing at air shows and competing in air races. Written by Aviatrix Project
