Ingrid van Ginkel (and Yvonne van den Dool)

Ginkel, Ingrid van

As a young woman in South Africa in the 1950s, Yvonne van den Dool’s dream was to fly. She fulfilled it and so much more, influencing women in aviation in her country and beyond. Her memoir, From Kitchen to Cockpit, documents her journey.

Ingrid van Ginkel, van den Dool’s daughter, inherited a strong sense of adventure from her parents. With a passion for experiencing diverse cultures and travel, she headed for the Far East, where she has taught in international schools for the past 15 years.
