In her own lyrically beautiful and amusingly blunt words, Norah brings to life a stranger-than-fiction story of the adventurous path she took to what was at the time the traditionally male domain of jet airliner cockpits. Wanting only a fair shot at the ultimate career in aviation, she encountered both harsh resistance and touching support as she broke the gender barrier in an environment--and era--when political correctness was still years away.

Using humor and candor to relay uplifting, bizarre and at times devastating experiences that were all a part of her colorful and unconventional life, Norah O'Neill was as skilled a writer as she was a pilot. Her readers are brought along on a breathtaking ride through hellish lows, exhilarating highs and astonishing adventures.

FLYING TIGRESS is grandly entertaining, capturing the interest of male and female aviation enthusiasts alike. Opening a window of understanding, it shows men and women as vulnerable and strong, deeply loving and humanly imperfect--with the inevitable conclusion that we're not really so different after all." Captain Jean Haley Harper, UAL
