Women in Aviation International Houston Chapter Presents
Mary Helen Foster, former Women Airforce Service Pilot (WASP)
Houston, TX – The story of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) is a chapter from World War II nearly forgotten for over 30 years. The first American women trained to fly military aircraft, the WASP logged millions of miles between 1942 and 1944 ferrying planes, towing targets, testing planes and training pilots.
Mary Helen was one of the 1700 women chosen to be part of the WASP program during World War II who so bravely helped our country in a time of war and helped paved the way for female aviators everywhere. In 2009, Foster was one of more than 300 of the remaining members of the WASP program received a Congressional Gold Medal in Washington D.C.
