Amelia Earhart, 1940. Earhart is probably the most famous female pilot in aviation history, due both to her aviation career and her mysterious disappearance. She promoted "airmindedness" at a time when most people were skeptical about airplanes as a form of transportation. Her confident personal and media presence reached millions in the 1920s and 1930s and still resonates today. SI-78-16945 by eluthrea

Amelia Earhart.   In 1932 Earhart—with her leather jacket, scarf and close-cropped hair—became the first female aviator to fly a solo transatlantic flight, redefining expectations of women along the way. Though the 39-year-old disappeared in 1937 during a flight around the world, she still serves as a reminder of female fearlessness. - Amy Spencer, Glamour Magazine 2009 by jem.stone
