Blanchard Class

Welcome to Blanchard class!

Our class is named after Sophie Blanchard, who was the first woman hot air balloon pilot. She showed great grit, determination and resilience at a time where women didn't normally take these roles. We can learn a lot from Sophie Blanchard!

Sophie Blanchard was inspirational as she took over from her husband, Jean-Pierre Blanchard, who was a hot air balloon pilot after he died. Sophie decided to keep his legacy alive and piloted many balloon flights over the years, which was unheard of for a women in the 1800s!
