WASP (Women Aircraft Service Pilot)

The WASP ( Women Aircraft Service Pilot) was created in August 1943. 25 000 women applied to join this paramilitary organization but only 1,074 of them earned their wings and became the first women pilots to fly American military aircraft. Except for the fact that they were not trained for combat, their course of instruction was essentially the same as that for aviation cadets.But all records of the WASP were classified and sealed for 35 years, so their contributions to the war effort were little known and inaccessible to historians...
