Girls Aviation Series Books - Titles and Authors

This is the text of an eBay guide that I created in 2006.  The guides are now orphaned pages that can only be found through an Internet search.  eBay plans to delete the guides in April 2018.

This eBay guide was viewed approximately 6,200 times.

The purpose of this guide is to list the many different vintage girls series books that feature aviation as the main theme of the story.  This guide lists complete series that revolve around flight as well as some individual titles that focus on aviation.  Two series that feature flight attendants as the main character are also listed here.

There are also many different boys series books that feature aviation, and at a later time these books may be listed in a separate guide.  I am quite certain that I do not have every single girls aviation series listed here at this time, and as I learn of additional series, I will add them to this list.
