BJ Erikson

By Sarah Bryn Rickman


Before the Women Airforce Service Pilots, commonly called WASP, female pilots were making an important contribution to the World War II build-up by ferrying planes in the Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS). Barbara Jane 'BJ' Erickson was one of the first WAFS, having learned to fly at eighteen.

BJ became a WAFS squadron leader and the first woman pilot to receive the Air Medal for Meritorious Achievement.
Sarah Bryn Rickman, has written widely about the early female military pilots and now turns her research and writing talents to a "J" biography of BJ Erickson to be released late in 2017.
