For Amelia Earhart, aviation and flying started out as hobbies, something she enjoyed doing as she pursued a career in social work after working as a nurse. Her enthusiasm grew and after becoming the first woman passenger to complete a transatlantic flight, Earhart began flying by herself. Throughout her career, she became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic as a solo pilot. Additionally, she was the first ever pilot to fly by themselves from Hawaii to California. Unfortunately, during an attempt to fly around the world, Earhart’s plane vanished before reaching its next destination. Her sudden disappearance is a mystery which has still not been resolved. To learn the details behind how she started flying and her various exploits, visit the Amelia Earhart Topic Page in Credo Reference.
