Betty Greene (1920-1997) wanted to learn to fly from the age of 7. And with some money given to her by her uncle, that's exactly what she did.

When World War II started, Betty used her skills to serve with the Women Airforce Service Pilots (also known as WASPs). She even became part of a research project that sent pilots way up high, through the stratosphere!

Once the war had ended, she brought her passion for flying and her passion for the Lord Jesus together, and helped to set up a mission which is known today as the Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF).

Throughout her life, Betty made over 4,640 flights and served in 12 countries, landing in around 20 more.

Children will enjoy this beautifully illustrated children's biography, which can be read to young children aged 4-5 and read by children aged 6 plus.

Worksheets are available to help children interact with the biography. Part of the new Do Great Things For God series. By exploring the lives of inspiring Christian women, this series will enthuse children about the great things they can do for God.
