Finally, Amelia decided to be a pilot after years of training. She took small flights and worked her way up. After being the first female to fly over the Atlantic Ocean she decided she wanted to fly around the world. So she set off. She would land at different stops to fuel up and get some rest.
Her partner Fred Noonan.
