Diversity in aviation
Bessie Coleman earns her pilot's license in France. She is the
first Black woman to get a pilot's license; she had to train in
France because U.S. flight schools would not teach a woman,
let alone an African American. She is also the first Native
American to earn a pilot's license. Her father was a Native
American. Raymonde de Laroche was the first woman to
receive a pilot's license; Eugene Bullard was the first African
American military pilot to fly in combat; Mae Jemison was
the first African American female astronaut. Today, women
make up less than 7 percent of the pilot population; African
Americans just 3 percent.
