American lady citizen Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly solo in the Atlantic (1932). Earhart became a public favorite among aviators of the time. Earhart also urged the public to encourage and enable young women to become airplane pilots.

She made several other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences, and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nine, an organization for female pilots. She was born 24 July 1897 in Atchinson, Kansas, United States of America.

She died on 2 July, 1937 en route to Howland Island along the water route of the Pacific Ocean. She was married to George P. Putnam who was one of the most famous promoters in the country at that time. Their marriage used to be head news of the town and many people idealized them as the 'super couple'.
