Amelia Mary Earhart, born on July 24, 1897, is best know as the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic ocean. She flew from Newfoundland to Ireland on May 21, 1932.

In 1937, she and her co-pilot, Fred Noonan, began their flight around the world from California.  Heading east and sticking fairly close to the equator, they travelled from North America to South America, across the Atlantic to Africa, across the continent, through South East Asia and into Polynesia, where they disappeared before reaching Hawaii.

As a pilot and university lecturer, she was behind the creation of an organization for female pilots and, as a best-selling author, she quickly became a role model for women, everywhere, who wish to push the limits.
