Yvonne Pope Sintes started out as an air stewardess but always dreamed of doing something different and went on to become the first British woman to pilot a commercial jet.
She has written a book called "Trailblazer in Flight" which looks at how she made it in the male dominated world of aviation.
Richard Westcott has been to meet her.
