Why Did Vicky Learn To Fly?

Why did Vicky learn to fly That’s a hard question to answer.  She had enough money to take lessons and buy her own plane. She certainly was adventurous and fearless. I wonder what her parents thought about her learning to fly. I never knew my fathers parents because they died before I was born.  Vicky was forty when she learned to fly. That itself was unusual.  Most of the women pilots were much younger.

In 1930 people wanted to imitate the countries that had more women flyers. America was slow to catch up with the numbers of women pilots. Vicky helped that is for sure. I would think that Amelia and Charles Lindbergh did influence Vicky.
