Women's Airforce Service Pilots flew non-combat missions during World War II to free men for combat. Although the Air Force trained only about 1,200 WASP's, they had an enormous impact on World War II aviation.

Women pilots assigned to the Air Transport Command ferried forty-three types of aircraft, including small primary trainers, the fastest fighters, heavy transports, and huge bombers, from factories to bases throughout the United States and Canada. They towed targets, took meteorologists up for weather observations, transported equipment, broke in engines, and flew as couriers.
