A story of love, passion, and overcoming adversity both on the ground and in the air. Based on the true story of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA).
We are delighted to announce that the Attagirls novel will be published as a book on 1st August 2021. The novel, which has been adapted from the original screenplay, is set in World War 2 and tells the story of 22-year-old Molly Rose, a flight engineer and pilot in her family’s aviation business who joins the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), an organisation tasked to deliver aircraft from factories and maintenance units to the RAF’s front-line squadrons.
Accepted into an intense training program and posted to an ‘all women’ ferry pool, Molly has to adapt quickly to an organisation made up of pilots from diverse backgrounds including Britain’s social elite, all of whom share the same insatiable appetite to fly. Flying without armament, radios or navigation equipment and subjected to the daily dangers of adverse weather, friendly fire, barrage balloons and marauding German fighters, Molly’s flying skills are put to the test when the unthinkable happens.
