Katherine Stinson, one of the earliest American, female pilots being the fourth woman to earn a license in the USA (No 148 from the Aero Club of America), learnt to fly in 1911 and soon after began exhibition flying. Despite her age of 21, she was known as the “flying schoolgirl”. In 1916, she and her family founded the Stinson School of Flying in San Antonio, Texas, USA. She and her sister, Marjorie, who was the Chief Flying Instructor, gave flying lessons, while her mother, Emma managed the firm, which also rented and sold aircraft. They were the first women to own a flying school.
