The Aviatrix

Synopsis

In 1928, Lady Heath became the first person to fly solo from Cape Town to London. Eighty five years later, Tracey Curtis-Taylor sets out in a vintage open cockpit biplane to fly that adventure again. We follow the challenges she faces flying 10,000 miles up the length of Africa, vulnerable to the weather, flying through politically unstable countries and facing enormous physical demands. Desperate to make her life long dream come true - does she have what it takes? http://www.theaviatrixfilm.com/
