At the age of 14, Deborah Wardley couldn't wait to start flying lessons. She progressed rapidly up the aviation ladder, setting her sights on flying the "big jets". When the airlines repeatedly knocked her back, she took the matter to court. This set her on a collision course with Ansett's autocratic head, Sir Reginald Ansett, and turned her into a media heroine. After a long struggle, Deborah Wardley won her battle and became Australia's first female commercial pilot. In this book, she relates her story to Elaine McKenna, author of "Better Than Dancing".
