Amelia Earhart Reenactment Flight – The Amelia Project #flywithamelia

Amelia Earhart Reenactment Flight – The Amelia Project.

In 1937, Amelia Mary Earhart set out to circumnavigate the globe and disappeared over the South Pacific, becoming one of history’s greatest mysteries. Over 75 years after her disappearance, she continues to inspire others to explore, push boundaries and question the status quo.

It is this legacy that inspires Amelia Rose each day to chase her own adventures and encourage others to do the same.

In 17 stops and approximately 24,300 nautical miles, Amelia will fly a Pilatus PC-12 NG around the globe, completing the flight that her namesake never got to finish. Along the way Amelia will honor her namesake’s tenacity and love for aviation possibilities by awarding flight scholarships to young women around the country through her other passion project, the Fly With Amelia Foundation. Upon completion, Amelia Rose will be the youngest woman to circumnavigate the globe in a single-engine aircraft.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
