On tour in Los Angeles during 1912 she met Martin. “Tiny” made her fi rst jump from Martin’s plane over the fi elds at Griffi th Park, Los Angeles, on June 21, 1913. She used one of the original Broadwick parachutes he called the “Patent Safety Pack Vest.” In 1914, “Tiny” successfully demonstrated a jump from an aircraft for the U.S. Army at North Island, San Diego, which led to the future military use of parachutes. “Tiny” and Charles Broadwick parted ways, and she retired in 1922 after thousands of parachute jumps. She enjoyed years of recognition as an Early Bird in U.S. Aviation. In 1914, Martin was hired to give exhibition fl ights in conjunction with the dedication of Los Angeles Harbor. Although she had never made a


parachute jump, Hilder off ered to make his appearance more exciting by parachuting from his aircraft in exchange for fl ying lessons. Without hesitation, donning a small rubber tire tube over her swim suit in the event she landed in water, Hilder jumped from Martin’s biplane into the arms of Floyd waiting below. That year, Hilder fl ew solo in a Martin aircraft but did not apply for an aviator’s license. She and Floyd had two children, losing one to an automobile accident while they briefl y lived in Pennsylvania. Newspapers carried stories of their surviving two-year old child, Prevost, often fl ying with one or both of his parents in California. Hilder told reporters, that his fi rst words were “fl y” referring to his desire to go aloft. Following her jump


over Los Angeles Harbor, Hilder preferred fl ying a plane to jumping out of them. I have not yet found my friend’s


relative, Emmett Smith, connected to the invention of the rip cord.
