In 1937 a woman named Amelia Earhart decided to embark on a one-in-a-lifetime journey with an airplane across the whole world. She was a 39-year-old female pilot who broker numerous records in aviation. In her last air flight she wanted to travel across the whole globe and set a new example for all women pilots worldwide. Sadly, it was her last flight and no one knows exactly how her plane disappeared. It will forever remain a mystery.
But now another woman who has the same name as the great Amelia Earhart is going to attempt and hopefully travel across the world. Ms. Earhart stated that she will recreate and complete the 1937 astonishing journey because she wants to raise awareness about aviation and female pilots in particular. Only 6% of pilots are women and with her record-breaking attempt Ms. Earhart hopes to boost the percentage.
Of course today’s Amelia Earhart will have state of the art technology and a custom build airplane. In the summer she will embark on a 28,000 miles journey and make 14 stops across the globe. Her website is The Amelia Project where you can check out all the details.
