Sally Ride was the first American woman to go into space. She followed the first woman in space, Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, who launched decades before Ride in 1962. It took quite a while for the United States to even accept women into the astronaut program. During her flight training, Ride purchased a bumper sticker that declared, A WOMAN'S PLACE IS IN THE COCKPIT!, and stuck it prominently to the front of her desk.

Looking back on her career, Ride said:

I never went into physics or the astronaut corps to become a role model. But after my first flight, it became clear to me that I was one. And I began to understand the importance of that to people. Young girls need to see role models in whatever careers they may choose, just so they can picture themselves doing those jobs someday. You can't be what you can't see.

Displaying this historic slogan may still rile up some of the men who think women should be at the back of the plane. But you know you want to. Be that aviatrix so little girls know they can too.

Fly Like a Girl!

Or a woman... or an aviatrix... or just a pilot! We want to have fun with flight training and flying adventures, so no disrespect is meant when we call the women in aviation "girls." No matter how you refer to yourself, get out there and show the boys what a great pilot you are.

  • Printed on Demand

    Our clothing is printed or embroidered (and often sewn) on demand when your order is placed, meaning we do not keep an inventory of all sizes and styles. Each product is made especially for you as soon as you place an order, which is why it takes us a bit longer to deliver some things. This system allows us to offer as many products as we do and keep prices as low as possible while being environmentally friendly by not producing extra product.

  • An Aviatrix-Owned Small Business

    AviatrixA was founded in 2015 by a female pilot looking to make extra funds for flight lessons by selling t-shirts. Based in a small town in California, the inspiration for our original, female-centric aviation products comes from 9 years of general aviation flying and flight instruction. We hope you enjoy our products as much as we do!
