Bobbi Trout – 1906

Evelyn “Bobbi” Trout was born on this day in 1906. She lived to be the ripe old age of 97, which was amazing for such an early aviatrix.

Most known for being the first woman to set the first non-refueling endurance record and for running in the first ever Powder Puff Derby.

Her first flight was in 1922 at the age of 16 – in a JN-4 Jenny.
