Amelia Earhart became the first woman pilot to fly alone across the Atlantic Ocean in an airplane--and she broke many other flight records before her mysterious disappearance.

She worked hard and learned how to fly airplanes at a time when many people didn't think women should be pilots. Explore how Amelia Earhart went from being a young girl growing up in Kansas to an American hero and a celebrated pioneer of flight.
