Pauline Vahey, Chairman of the British Women Pilots Association, explained, Freydis Sharland was the first chairman of the British Women Pilots Association when it was established in 1955 and she has maintained close links with us ever since. She will be sadly missed. She was an inspiration to all women pilots, a brave and fearless aviator, who distinguished herself in the World War II Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA). After the war she continued to fly and to provide enormous support and encourage for women in aviation. Freydis learned to fly at Cambridge before the war, but had a total flying experience of only 26 hours and 10 minutes when she joined ATA in 17 February 1943. By the time she left ATA at the end of October 1945 she had flown 607 hours and 25 minutes in ATA service, flying 38 different types from a Lysander to a Wellington (and everything in between). Being based at Hamble, Spitfires were her bread and butter, and she ferried 110 Spitfires. In 1953 she delivered an aircraft on her own to Pakistan as a freelance commercial pilot.
