Amelia Rose Earhart is a passionate aviatrix, a seeker of all things adventurous and an accomplished public speaker, spending the last 8 years working as a television and radio reporter covering breaking news, traffic and weather in Denver and Los Angeles. Amelia is the President of the Fly With Amelia Foundation (501c3), 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.
In the summer of 2012, Amelia completed her instrument training hours by flying from Oakland, Calif. to Miami, Fla., tracing the final trans-continental flight of her namesake, Amelia Mary Earhart, in a Cirrus SR-20. In January of this year, Amelia flew from Stans, Switzerland, to Denver, Colorado, crossing the North Atlantic in a Pilatus PC-12 NG.
In June 2014, she completed the flight around the world that her namesake was attempting when her plane disappeared over the Pacific Ocean in 1937. She became the youngest woman to fly around the world in a single engine aircraft.
