Hi everyone, I'm Amelia Earhart. I currently hold the record as the youngest woman to circumnavigate the globe in a single-engine aircraft. AMA!
Hi All. Yes, I share the same name as the legendary Amelia Earhart, and no, we're not related. However, we do have a few things in common. An adventurous spirit, a passion for flight and the desire to fly around the world.
By recreating and completing Amelia Mary Earhart’s flight around the world in the summer of last year, I developed an even deeper connection to my namesake and hopefully encouraged the world to pursue their own adventures. As president of the Fly With Amelia Foundation, I continue that work by providing grants and flight training scholarships to high school aged girls.
My newest passion project involves working with XTI Aircraft Company to develop the TriFan 600, the world’s first commercially certified vertical takeoff airplane that aims to provide door-to-door travel at the comparable to the speed, range and comfort of a business jet. XTI is also one of the first companies to run an equity crowdfunding campaign so that anyone has the chance to be a part of it. Learn more about this project and the TriFan 600 at www.xtiaircraft.com.
Here's proof that it's me: http://i.imgur.com/v0mAlVl.jpg
