About Amelia Sky Race
Amelia was at the frontier of civil aviation during the time when flying was a luxury only few could afford and had the privilege to experience. She captured the hearts of millions of people in America and around the world by taking up the challenge of flying solo around the globe in 1937. She has remained a role model for many people, especially women, to follow ever since.
Amelia Sky Race, the multi-leg female pilots race around the world, is an international teams competition that crowns the best team at the end of the race based on the minimum flying time accumulated. Although the competitive part of the race is the main attraction, two other parts of the race are of enormous importance: the humanitarian program and the educational program.
