They were the pioneering organizations of civilian female pilots, employed to fly military aircraft under the direction of theUnited States Army Air ForcesduringWorld War II. The WFTD and WAFS were merged on August 5, 1943, to create the paramilitary WASP organization. The female pilots of the WASP ended up numbering 1,074, each freeing a male pilot for combat service and duties. They flew over 60million miles in every type of military aircraft.[1]The WASP was grantedveteranstatus in 1977, and given theCongressional Gold Medalin 2009.
