In 1937, Amelia Mary Earhart set out to circumnavigate the globe and disappeared over the South Pacific, becoming one of history’s greatest mysteries. Over 75 years after her disappearance, she continues to inspire others to explore, push boundaries and question the status quo.

It is this legacy that inspires Amelia Rose each day to chase her own adventures and encourage others to do the same.

By recreating and symbolically completing Amelia Mary Earhart’s flight around the world, Amelia Rose Earhart hopes to encourage the world to pursure their own adventures.  In 17 stops and approximately 24,300 nautical miles, Amelia is flying a Pilatus PC-12 NG around the globe, completing the flight that her namesake never got to finish. Along the way Amelia will honor her namesake’s tenacity and love for aviation by awarding flight scholarships to young women around the country through her other passion project, the Fly With Amelia Foundation. Upon completion, Amelia Rose will be the youngest woman to circumnavigate the globe in a single-engine aircraft.
