My great grandmother, Beatrice, was always looking for the next adventure in her life! She trained as an engineer, which was really unusual at the time, and later as a pilot. She became one of the first female pilots to ﬂy across the Atlantic in the 1930s. She took a navigator with her. A journalist also wanted to join them on the ﬂight but there was simply no room for him in the plane. On her hundredth birthday we had a big family celebration and she showed me some of her early photos. She told me about her famous ﬂight and said the only thing that really worried her wasn’t the bad weather, but the fact that they only just had enough fuel. Later in her life, she wanted to teach other pilots to ﬂy, but that never happened because she was always too busy! I want to be a pilot too, but ﬂying an aeroplane now is very different from Granny Beatrices’s experiences! You rely on computers more than people but I still think it’s a really exciting career choice!
1 Beatrice was a pilot before she became an engineer.
2 There was a navigator and a passenger on Beatrice’s important ﬂight.
3 Beatrice worried more about how much fuel was left than about a storm.

6 Jenny thinks it’s great that ﬂying modern planes is so different.
