Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart was an American aviation pioneer. Earhart was the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She received the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross for this record. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. Earhart joined the faculty of the Purdue University aviation department in 1935 as a visiting faculty member to counsel women on careers and help inspire others with her love for aviation. During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in a Lockheed Model 10 Electra, Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island on July 2, 1937. The search for her plane continues to this day.
