NPR Story
 

Evelyn Bryan Johnson, nicknamed "Mama Bird," was born in Corbin, Kentucky, on November 4, 1909. She was the female pilot with the most number of flying hours. Johnson, who learned to fly in 1944, logged in 57,635.4 flying hours and was the oldest flight instructor in the world. She trained more pilots, gave more FAA exams than any other pilot, and was named in the Guinness Book of World Records. Johnson is an inductee of the Women in Aviation Pioneers Hall of Fame, the Tennessee and Kentucky aviation halls of fame and others. She was awarded a bronze Carnegie Medal for rescuing a helicopter pilot after he crashed.

On July 21, 2007, Johnson was inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame in Dayton, Ohio, alongside astronaut Sally Ride and Adventurer Steve Fossett, among others. This induction was her sixth such honor.

Until her death in 2012, at age 102, Johnson continued to serve as the Manager of Morristown, Tennessee's Moore-Murrell Airport, a job she held for 58 years. A car crash that forced doctors to amputate her leg a few years ago did not ground the spirit of America's favorite aviatrix. She is greatly missed by all of us who learned to fly under her direction and who loved her very much and appreciated her many years of service to our community.
