Amelia Rose Earhart          

President of the Fly With Amelia Foundation; One of the Youngest Women to Fly Around the World in a Single Engine Aircraft

Amelia Rose Earhart, namesake to the famed Amelia Mary Earhart who attempted to fly around the world in 1937, is one of the youngest women to fly around the world in a single engine aircraft. In 2014, Amelia flew a Pilatus PC12-NG 28,000 miles, crossing the equator six times, through fourteen countries to complete a circumnavigation of the globe. Her parents, sharing the Earhart surname, wanted their daughter to have a name that would inspire her to live a life of passion and adventure.

Amelia is the President of the Fly With Amelia Foundation, a non-profit organization that grants flight-training scholarships to young women, aged sixteen to eighteen. The Fly With Amelia Foundation also fosters aviation and aerospace opportunities for people of all ages through aviation-based educational STEM opportunities, in partnership with Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Denver, CO.

Amelia has been a passionate aviatrix since her first flight lesson at the age of twenty-one, a seeker of all things adventurous and is an accomplished public speaker, spending the last 8 years working as a television news anchor, covering breaking news, traffic and weather in Denver and Los Angeles. Amelia was given the Amelia Earhart Pioneering Achievement Award in 2013 and in 2014 was named by the Jaycees as one of the "Top Ten Young Americans".

Don't Quit Your Daydream: How Our Idle Moments Can Lead Us To Passionate Pursuits

Amelia believes, “the places our minds travel to when we let go of obligation and constraint, are often the ones that deliver the most personal joy”. In a down-to-earth and stirring presentation, Amelia shows us how something as daunting as flying around the world starts with one keystroke and why we should never quit our daydreams.

Who Do You Think You Are?: Crafting Identity After Defeat

Just months before launching on a 28,000 mile flight around the world, Amelia Earhart discovered, after thirty years of believing that she was related to the original, that she did not share a bloodline. Can we recover after our personal or business identities are put into question? This emotionally engaging talk outlines ten ways to make a comeback after it seems like the whole world is against you.

Defining Your Own True North: The Beauty Of Uncharted Territory

Most people will tell you that they have a dream… only to immediately begin listing the reasons why it will never happen. Amelia Earhart began fundraising for her global flight with zero dollars in the bank. Upon launch, she had singlehandedly earned the unwavering global support of twenty-one leading aerospace and aviation organizations. Defining our own “True North," we can live a life set on fire.

Virtual Program: The Holding Pattern

"Sit tight, stay calm, we’ll let you know as soon as we learn more. Once again, we thank you for flying the friendly skies…”

We’re all stuck in a personal and professional holding patterns as we navigate through the difficult challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic. Our businesses are basically grounded, our families are forced to attend school from home. It all sounds more like the latest Netflix binge than real life. Unfortunately, this is our current reality and we’ve got to figure out how to fly this plane. As an around the world pilot, Amelia has faced challenges that have grounded her flights, closed borders and rocked her wings so hard she thought they’d snap right off.

As a speaker, she has led Fortune 500 leaders toward their personal goals by discussing the importance of learning to love the turbulence. During this bumpy time, Amelia provides virtual discussions and workshops as webinars and/or pre-produced videos, specifically tailored to help you and your team stay in flight during this holding pattern we are clearly going to be in for quite a while. This discussion between your team will include actionable ways your team can reduce “fuel burn” by prioritizing tasks, create a work from home a routine and checklist to maintain straight and level “flight”, and most importantly, discussing several ways to quiet the mental games our “what if” minds use to distract us away from productivity and success.


In her second CREW keynote appearance, around the world pilot Amelia Rose Earhart invites you into the cockpit for a raw and invigorating discussion about the importance of learning to love the turbulence.

Inspired by the tenacious around the world flight attempt of her namesake, Amelia Rose took to the skies with the goal of flying a single engine aircraft 28,000 miles around the globe. Just months before her launch, Amelia’s flight nearly came to a very public crash landing.

Take flight with Amelia as she shares her realtime response to a navigating and course correcting a flight plan, but more importantly, navigating a life.

Amelia’s keynote message lingers with her audiences, combining skills from a decade long career as a NBC TV Anchor & Host in Denver, CO with an invigorating real life account of a successful (& turbulent) attempt to fly around the world.

“The only aircraft that never experiences turbulence is the one that stays locked up in a hangar. That’s not what planes were built for and that’s not what you and I were built for either. We were built to take flight.” -Amelia Rose Earhart
