The first Czech female pilot.
The first Czech female pilot. After prematurely ending her singing career due to illness, she devoted herself to aviation. In 1911 she passed her pilot's exam and received an International Aviation Federation license.
The illustrated project Czech Heroines was inspired by the centenary of voting rights for Czech women and the 200th anniversary of the birth of the prominent Czech writer Božena Němcová. It is a joint project by the Czech Centres, the Faculty of Design and Art at the University of West Bohemia and Radio Prague International.
