    Amelia Earhart

    Aviatrix & President, Fly with Amelia Foundation

    Amelia Rose Earhart is a passionate aviatrix and the youngest woman to fly around the world in a single engine aircraft. Earhart is the President of the Fly With Amelia Foundation, which grants flight-training scholarships to young women, ages 16 to 18, and fosters aviation and aerospace opportunities for people off all ages through aviation-based educational curriculum. Earhart has worked in broadcast television as a news anchor in both Denver and Los Angeles for the past 8 years, where she flew in the helicopter and covered breaking news, traffic and weather. She obtained her private pilot license in February 2010, her instrument rating in a Cirrus SR-20 June 2013, and is currently working on her commercial and multi engine ratings. In the summer of 2012, Earhart completed her instrument training hours by flying from Oakland, California to Miami, Florida, tracing the final trans-continental flight of her namesake, Amelia Mary Earhart, in a Cirrus SR-20.
