Harriet Quimby (May 11, 1875 – July 1, 1912)
She was the second woman in the world to receive a pilot’s license and the first American woman to do so.  She earned the nickname “America’s First Lady of the Air” after being the first woman to fly across the English Channel.  Unfortunately, she was killed a mere 11 months after receiving her pilot’s license while performing at the Third Annual Boston Aviation Meet.
