Amelia Rose Earhart

Amelia Rose Earhart

It has been over 75 years since famous aviator Amelia Earhart disappeared. Despite the mystery and speculation, next year, another Amelia Earhart will take on the same challenge… and she will fly a Pilatus PC-12NG. The aircraft was chosen for its reliability, speed, range, and performance. We agree it is an excellent choice!

Amelia Rose Earhart, 30, works as a Denver television anchor, reporting on weather and traffic. She took her first flying lesson in June of 2004, and once recreated Earhart’s transcontinental flight from California to Florida, but none of that compares to her next adventure. In the summer of 2014, she and copilot, Patrick Carter, will start their greatest journey yet. They will fly 480,000 miles in 14 days, and over Howland Island, exactly where the late Earhart and her own co-pilot were supposed to land before disappearing in the South Pacific in 1937. If completed, she will become the youngest female to circumnavigate the globe in a single engine aircraft.
