Despite the risks, she pressed on with lessons, and after seven months of training, she received her aviation license from the Federation Aeronautique Internationale.
Coleman completed some extra flight lessons in Paris and then boarded a ship bound for the United States. American news outlets were instantly smitten with the year-old pilot. The Associated Press reported on September 26, that "Today [Coleman] returned as a full-fledged aviatrix, said to be the first of her race. In the early s, an aviatrix , or female aviator, was still a fairly new concept in America, and many of the most famous women flyers of the 20th century—like Laura Ingalls, Betty Skelton, and Amelia Earhart —had yet to enter the scene.

Officials eventually agreed, though audience members were still forced to sit on separate sides of the stadium once they entered.
Just when it seemed her career was reaching new heights, it was cut short by tragedy. On April 30, , she was riding with her mechanic William Wills in Jacksonville, Florida, in preparation for a show scheduled for the next day, when a wrench left in the engine caused the plane to spin out of control.
