For today’s AMTs Gia’s research is important in reminding us where we came from.
Ken MacTiernan, A&P, IA
Director, Aircraft Maintenance Technicians Association


For years much has been printed about pilots. Now finally, the aviation community has a brilliantly written heritage of Mechanics, Engineers, and Builders. I doubly appreciate Ms. Koontz going the extra mile to uncover the achievements of women mechanics.
Robin LaMar, A&P
Founder, Association for Women in Aviation Maintenance



With her magazine articles on mechanics now combined with new stories into this book, Gia has filled in a blank spot that was long overdue in aviation history.
Capt. William Wilkerson, A&P
