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.
Amelia obtained her private pilot license in February 2010, her instrument rating in a Cirrus SR-20 June of 2013, and is currently working on her commercial rating in a Cessna 182RG at Centennial Airport in Denver, CO. 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, CO, crossing the North Atlantic in a Pilatus PC-12 NG, the same plane she will use to circumnavigate the globe.
Amelia has also flown in a F-16 with the 120th Fighter Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base, and has 4,000 hours operating a Cineflex high-definition video camera onboard the Eurocopter AS350 helicopter in Los Angeles, Calif. and Denver, CO.
