French record-setting aviator, she set her fifth world speed record on June 22, 1962 at Istres, France.

The daughter of a wealthy shipbuilder, she married Paul Auriol in 1938. Her father-in-law would become President of France after WWII. In 1947, she began flying lessons. Despite being a passenger on a seaplane plane that crashed in July 1949 and despite undergoing 22 operations to repair her injuries, she continued flying and obtained her license to fly helicopters. In 1950 she earned her military license and a year later became the first woman test pilot. On May 11, 1951 she set her first speed record. On August 3, 1953, she became the first woman to break the sound barrier. In 1968 she published her memoir, "Vivre et Voler," translated into the English, "I Live to Fly," in 1970. With many awards, medals and records to her name, she died February 12, 2000 at her Paris home.
