“WASP Special Delivery”
by Gil Cohen
(See below to order)
24 April 1943: The first class of the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots, Class 43-1, graduated from the four-month flight training program and earned their wings as U.S. Army pilots. The class entered with 38 trainees and 24 graduated. Each woman had a civil pilot’s license and at least 200 hours of flight time. Over 25,000 women applied and approximately 1,900 were accepted. By the end of the war, 1,074 had graduated.
The WASPs received the same primary, basic and advanced flight training as their U.S. Army Air Force male counterparts. Some went on to specialized training in heavy bombers or fighters.

WELCOME TO VIRGINIA BADER FINE ARTS -
THE FIRST COMPANY TO SELL AVIATION ART
IN THE UNITED STATES!
For over three decades, we have had the opportunity to provide aviation art collectors and WWII history buffs with special signed aviation prints. We represent all of the top aviation artists in the world and we know all the prints that have ever been published, so if you are looking for a print, let us help you find it. Most importantly, we have a selection of prints that were signed by pilots who fought in significant wars, like World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and Korea - many of them are no longer with us.
Virginia was the first person to sell aviation art in the U.S and to sell prints actually signed by the pilots. Our experience bringing famous Aces over from Germany and Britain, allows us to bring our customers closer to their favorite pilots than they ever imagined and the good signature prints are becoming increasingly unavailable.
We invite you to browse our website either by
Artist, Airplane Type or Title.
If you are in the California area, come visit our gallery on John Wayne Airport in Orange County, where we have many fantastic framed and unframed art prints on display.
