Taking Off tells the story of early aviation in America as seen through the eyes of one of the first and youngest women pilots. Texas-born Margaret Thomas first saw an aeroplane in 1920, when she was only eight years old. She was instantly captivated. Determined to fulfill her dream and achieve her ambition of becoming a pilot, she persuaded a cousin, who owned a Flying School, to let her be a student. Margaret took her first flying lesson at the age of fourteen. By the time she was seventeen she had a full pilot's licence and became one of the famous "Ninety-Nines", the society formed by the nienety-nine woman pilots of the United States. Taking Off is an incredible story of early aviation and of a woman's determination to be accepted as an equal into the elite club of professional pilots.
