Pioneer in Aviation - The Life of Amelia Earhart

During history, many notable people have been influential in the developments in aviation. The Wright Brothers and Charles Lindbergh are some of the key people that have played roles in aviation. But one of the first female pioneers in aviation was also a well-known figure. Her name is Amelia Earhart.

Earhart was one of the first female pilots, and one that has established herself as a key individual in aviation. Born in 1897 in Atchison, Kansas, Earhart had a spirit of adventure at an early age and became interested in aviation. After a visit to an airfield in 1920, Earhart had her first ride in an airplane, which feed her interest in flight and sparked her desire to fly her own plane. After acquiring a plane, she started to learn how to fly her own plane.

Earhart became one of the best known female pilots of the era when in 1928 she became the first woman to fly in a transatlantic flight. Her accomplishment was well documented and she started to be called Lady Lindy, a reference to Charles Lindbergh and Queen of the Air. She became a celebrity from the flight, and started to make appearances and became an author. In 1932, she gained additional notoriety by becoming the first woman to have a solo transatlantic flight as pilot.

In 1937, Earhart attempted to become the first women to complete a world flight. Unfortunately, the flight was unsuccessful, and Earhart and plane disappeared and was never recovered. While the exact details of the accident were never uncovered, Amelia Earhart has gone on to become a legendary pioneer as a female pilot and role model.
