Get to Know More About This Amazing American Aviation Pioneer

One quote from Amelia Earhart that’s still remembered today is, “Adventure is worthwhile in itself.”

That quote pretty much defined her life — one that’s filled with jaw-dropping feats. She became the first woman to do a solo flight across the Atlantic as well as the first person ever to fly solo from Hawaii to the United States mainland. While those two were her most famous exploits, she also holds other records, such as being the first woman to fly solo above 14,000 feet.

On June 1, 1937, Amelia Earhart alongside her navigator, Fred Noonan, attempted an eastbound flight to circumnavigate the globe. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to finish the attempt and were declared lost at sea on July 19, 1937. The last time the pair was seen was when they departed for tiny Howland Island, supposedly their next refueling stop.

In honor of this extraordinary woman who continues to inspire people even today, July 24th was declared National Amelia Earhart Day. It’s a day dedicated to paying tribute to this American aviation pioneer, her career, life, and contributions to the aviation industry.

Be a part of the celebration! Goodwill Car Donations has listed these five fascinating ways of celebrating National Amelia Earhart Day on July 24th:

  1. Read and research about Amelia Earhart.

Know more about Amelia Earhart by spending the day reading about her. You can also read about other famous women aviation pioneers such as Louise Thaden and Bessie Coleman.

  1. Raise awareness about National Amelia Earhart Day.

Not many people know that July 24th is National Amelia Earhart Day. Help raise awareness about who she is, her accomplishments, and her importance in aviation history by using social media to post articles and pictures about her.

  1. Book a flight somewhere.

Book a flight to another state or country on July 24th. Nothing celebrates Amelia Earhart Day better than being in the skies, her favorite place to be.

  1. Encourage women to be pilots.

Whether it’s your daughter, niece, or a female friend, tell them about Amelia Earhart. You might inspire these women to consider aviation as a career and become pilots themselves.

  1. Try a flight simulator game.

Only the very rich can afford to buy planes. It’s outrageously expensive even just to rent one. The closest “flying experience” we can have is by playing a flight simulator game. Download one on your computer or mobile phone and try flying even if it’s behind a screen.
