Bonjour

On that site
Judith Kaplan Eisenstein

it is said that


"* Jeanne Pallier

..... on 6th September 1912 she received French pilot's licence number 1012 and on that day was probably the FIRST woman pilot to fly over Paris in a Nieuport-Astra. She was 48 years old when she earned her licence which may have made her one of the oldest of the women pioneer pilots at the time. She has also been credited with the FIRST all-female flight when she carried Madame Duchange in her aircraft prior to January 1913 ( from Dave Lam)"

So ,may be, she was born on 1864 and died when she was 75 years old

Jeanne Pallier seems to have been born on 19 July 1871 at Dijon, according to the only source I can find which gives her birthday. Many other sources do say that she was 48 when she got her license in 1912, though this is apparently wrong-- she would have been 41 if this birthdate is correct. She experienced flight first in a Bleriot in October 1910, but then learned to fly primarily in the biplane Astra CM. She earned her license in a smaller Astra in 1912. In 1913 she learned to fly a monoplane (Bleriot). She apparently flew up until 1914 (Vienna competition, I think), but is not heard of in aviation after that time. Like several of the early lady aviators, she got involved in (ground) ambulance work during the first world war. Doc
