Amelia Earhart, born July 1897, was an American aviatrix who became the first female pilot to fly solo over the Atlantic ocean, and received several awards for her achievements. Unfortunately, she disappeared while flying solo over the Pacific ocean in 1937. She was never found. I thought it would be a good thing to post about her, as even though she’s well known, it wouldn’t hurt to let more people know about her accomplishments. So to all of you budding aviatrices out there, don’t be put off. Make Ms. Earhart proud!
