She taught me to fly on a Tiger Moth in 1959. She was a wonderful teacher and a great lady. Take a look at her here:- https://www.bbc.com/news/av/uk-25547300

I know I owe her so much, not just the fact that she was a good instructor, demanding of high standards, but so kindly with it, setting me off on the right path towards good aviating. I saw her again a few years ago and, despite having had a stroke, she was still in great form. She achvieved a lot during her career, forging a path for women in a man's world, and she did it so successfully.

I send hearfelt love to her family.
