NEW YORK (CNN) -- Kelly Flinn, the Air Force pilot who resigned from the military because of her affair with a married man and other charges, will tell her story in a book to be published by Random House due out this fall.
The memoir, tentatively titled "Proud to Be", a phrase taken from her Air Force Academy class motto, will focus on the short-lived career of the 26-year-old B-52 pilot.
Harold Evans, the publisher of Random House, said in a statement that the memoir will be "...of major importance and lasting power by a remarkable woman, who was a groundbreaking pilot and a patriot. Her story of the double standard she endured and the broader implications for women both within the military and outside will prove to have widespread and deep repercussions."
Random House would not disclose the fee paid to Flinn.
