(worldkings.org) In 1928, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic. On April 07th, 2022, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared Amelia Earhart as “World’s first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean”.

Based on the world record nomination from America Records Institute (AMRI) and Decision No. WK/USA.INDIA/831/2022/No.287, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared Amelia Earhart  as World’s first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean on April 07th, 2022.

Amelia Mary Earhart (born July 24, 1897 – disappeared July 2, 1937, declared dead January 5, 1939) was an American aviation pioneer and author.

Born and raised in Atchison, Kansas, and later in Des Moines, Iowa, Earhart developed a passion for adventure at a young age, steadily gaining flying experience from her twenties. After Charles Lindbergh's solo flight across the Atlantic in 1927, Amy Guest (1873–1959) expressed interest in being the first woman to fly (or be flown) across the Atlantic Ocean. After deciding that the trip was too perilous for her to undertake, she offered to sponsor the project, suggesting that they find "another girl with the right image". While at work one afternoon in April 1928, Earhart got a phone call from Capt. Hilton H. Railey, who asked her, "Would you like to fly the Atlantic?"

Earhart reportedly received a rousing welcome on June 19, 1928, when she landed at Woolston in Southampton, England. She flew the Avro Avian 594 Avian III, SN: R3/AV/101 owned by Lady Mary Heath and later purchased the aircraft and had it shipped back to the United States.

She also set many other records, was one of the first aviators to promote commercial air travel, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences, and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots.
