Edna Paul was a pioneer aviatrix during the golden age of flight, first flying as a teenager in the late 1920s and continued into the 1940s. Originally from St. Louis, she frequented nearby airfields and attended the infamous National Air Races. Paul discusses the circumstances surrounding her time as a pilot; focusing on her early years as a teenager, a record-setting altitude flight, an anniversary flight made after her 100th birthday, and the sentiment of her family and friends concerning her life as a pilot.
