Amelia Rose Earhart, a newscaster and pilot since 2010, set out on the flight in part to raise awareness and promote the Fly With Amelia Foundation that funds scholarships for young women interested in pursuing careers in aviation. While passing over Howland Island, the last known location of Amelia Earhart on her 1937 flight, Amelia Rose Earhart announced the first ten Fly With Amelia Foundation scholarship winners.
Amelia Rose Earhart and Shane Jordan shared some of the highlights of the trip (there were no dramatic moments) and stayed afterward to meet visitors. The Pilatus PC-12NG used on the flight was on display all week, and some views of the inside of the aircraft are featured below. For those in St. Louis, Amelia Rose Earhart will be the featured speaker at the Greater St. Louis Flight Instructors Association Aviation Awards Banquet next weekend.
