Like other industries, for many years aviation provided only limited opportunities for non-Whites and women.  However, from the bi-plane to the space ship, Mexican-Americans have been significant, but unknown contributors to American aviation history.  As a process of reflection and remembrance, my research opens a space where past and present conceptions of aviation history coalesce.
