Fall in love with feeling this great and do it as much as you possibly can

Amelia Rose Earhart

Amelia Rose Earhart is a namesake and distant relative of the original Amelia Earhart. She is a private pilot, flying the Cirrus SR-20 at Independence Aviation at Centennial Airport in Denver, Colorado. She is a reporter at KUSA, the local NBC affiliate where she reports on traffic and breaking news. Amelia has worked as an aerial reporter and HD Cineflex camera operator in both Denver and Los Angeles where she covered everything from police chases to wildfires. Amelia is now a student of Meteorology at Mississippi State University and will be certified by the National Weather Association within the next two years.

Amelia’s life long goal is to retrace and complete Amelia Earhart’s 1937 round the world flight. She is currently working on her instrument rating at KAPA. She plans on embarking on her trip by the year 2016.


This is the definition of my point of no return: I am now past settling for a life of ordinary routine and I understand that I am capable and deserving of a rockin’ life of adventure and passion.


“My ultimate goal with all this flying, writing and excitement for aviation is to encourage others to feel the same happiness I feel when I am in the air. Yes, there is a selfish sense of escape, freedom, control, power and romance that I am overcome with, but when I land I want to shout out from the roof… I mean hangar-tops that, ”I hope anyone who is capable of enjoying this as much as I do gets the chance to feel this excitement!””
