In 1956, Brazilian Ada Rogato boarded her Cessna 140 to fly throughout the Amazon Jungle landing in newly opened forest clearings and visiting Indian villages. She was the first human being to do so. The epic trip took 163 hours of flight time.
To celebrate her accomplishment, the Institute for Women Of Aviation Worldwide (iWOAW) selected “It’s a jungle out there. 60 years of female bush pilots.” as the official theme for the 6th annual Women Of Aviation Worldwide Week to be held March 7-13, 2016.
