Details:With the men gone off to war and planes being manufactured, pilots and mechanics were needed to ready and transport the airplanes from the factory to their bases. The answer to the problem was to train women pilots to take over the men’s jobs. In September 1942, the U.S. Army Air Forces organized the Women’s Flying Training Detachment and the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron. On August 5, 1943, both organizations were merged into the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). The WASP were trained pilots who tested experimental planes, repaired aircraft, ferried planes from factories to their bases, pulled targets behind their planes for artillery practice, and trained male pilots. When the WASP program concluded in December 1944, the women had flown over 60 million miles in 78 different types of aircraft.
