Among the earliest and most influential people to emerge in the flight industry was Olive Ann Beech, co-founder of the Beechcraft Aircraft Corporation. Olive Ann led the company as it built iconic planes for civilians and the military, and helped to design important technology for NASA. In her decades of work with Beechcraft, she became affectionately known as “The First Lady of Aviation”.
