Amelia Earhart 1897-1937

Country Of Orgin

Amelia Earhart's home land/sponsor land is America. Amelia Earhart was born on July 24, 1897 in Kansas. She liked their home in Atchison, Kansas, especially her large bedroom with views of the nearby river, which is now a museum. She enjoyed her life with her grandparents, who she went to live with mainly because the old woman needed company and a distraction from the deaths of her mother, her son, and her daughter-in-law, as well as the poor mental condition of Amelias grandfather Alfred. Her parents lived only 50 miles away, and she summered with them, so she remained close to them.

Earhart's dates of exploration was 1928, 1932, 1931, 1935, and last buy not least, 1937. In 1937, Amelia Earhart "Was ready for her biggest feat to date." On July 2, 1937, the navigator Amelia Earhart and navigator Frederick Noonan is reported missing near Howland Island in the Pacific. The pair were attempting to fly around the world.

Amelia Earhart's purpose for exploration was to be the first women to fly an air plane across the Atlantic Ocean on her own. Her wish came true! On May 20, 1932, Amelia took off from Newfoundland. She headed east in a small red and gold plane. She had become the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean alone, with a few problems, but she overcame them. She became even more famous for pushing the boundries and opening new doors for women

One Of Amelia's Flight's


One of Amelia Earhart's obstacles was having to cross different territories. She, Amelia Earhart, even said herself that "It was struggle to get across the Atlantic Ocean." Amelia had problems with ice on the wings, fog from the ocean and instruments that failed. At one point, her plane dropped suddenly nine hundred meters. She regained control. And after fifteen hours she landed in Ireland.

Amelia Earhart's accomplishment was being the first ever women to fly an air plane across the Ocean (Atlantic), but before that, she flew many times across the United States and ever flew across the Pacific Ocean. She was so proud of her accomplishment and what she did for women. Earhart even said herself that she "could not believe that she was the first women ever to fly an air plane across the Atlantic Ocean."

Amelia set out to do a mans job during the Great Depression. "Amelia Earhart was an inspiring lady with strong courage and boldness." Amelia Earhart became a record-breaking female aviator whose fame helped public acceptance of aviation and paved the way for other women in commercial flight. There were an estimated 42,218 female pilot certificate holders in 2010. Phoenix East Aviation has many female student pilots from throughout the world — from countries in Europe, South America, the Middle East and Asia, as well as from the U.S. So as you can see, Amelia Earhart really inspired women to become pilots and do what they want to do.

Character Traits

I think that one of Amelia Earhart's traits based on her adventures/travels is being brave. I think that because she was taking a risk by crossing different territories. But the flight where she was no where to be found, she took a huge risk. That explains a lot about why I think that she is very brave woman.Another character trait I think about when I think of Earhart is a "Role Model For Women." I think that because during the Great Depression, Amelia wanted to become a pilot/co. pilot so she could inspire women to go do what they are capable of and to just follow there dreams. I think that she is a very generous woman to go out and inspire women like that.

Friend's Perspective

If I was Amelia Earhart's friend, I would say that she was gone very often on flights. Because of that, I would not be able to see her a lot. But, the best part would be when she came back because if she did a huge flight or a flight that no one has done, I could congratulate her, give her flowers, or even say good/great job.
