"The only journey without is one that never begins."
Amelia Rose Earhart: Beyond The Keynote
Named by the Jaycees as one of the “Top Ten Young Americans,” Amelia Rose Earhart recreated and symbolically completed the 1937 flight of her namesake, Amelia Mary Earhart. Her 28,000 mile flight around the world in a single engine aircraft became a symbol of determination, courage and empowerment for anyone who has ever decided to seek new horizons.
Fortune 500 Companies, The United States Air Force Academy, dozens of Universities and Civic Organizations, just to name a few, have been impacted and thousands have been jolted awake by Amelia’s contagious enthusiasm for action, her raw and charming leadership style and her ability to take audiences along on their own flight around the world with her story.
Amelia is the president of the Fly With Amelia Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides flight training scholarships to young women across America. She can be seen each morning on Denver’s NBC affiliate, KUSA-TV reporting on breaking news and traffic, is an active member of the Board of Directors at Wings Over the Rockies, Colorado’s Official Air and Space Museum and is currently working toward her multi-engine aircraft rating.
Iconic Flight Around the World
In 2014, Amelia Rose Earhart completed the flight around the world that her namesake, Amelia Mary Earhart, was unable to complete in 1937. During her journey, Amelia and her co-pilot flew 28,000 miles in 18 days. They visited 14 countries and completed six equatorial crossings. Along the way, they were able to award ten flight training scholarships to young women in the U.S. with hopes of obtaining a pilot’s license.
