Follow Amelia Earhart on Historic Around-the-World Flight

Amelia_Earhart_Cockpit

Amelia Rose Earhart and her co-pilot took off on June 26 to recreate the around-the-world flight made infamous by her namesake in 1937, flying a Pilatus PC-12NG that features Honeywell's Primus Epic 2.0 (formerly known as Primus Apex), XM Weather, landing gear and more. Honeywell is one of the sponsors of her around-the-world journey, which follows the same path the original Earhart flew before mysteriously disappearing in the South Pacific.

Earhart, a private pilot and former news anchor in Denver, Colo., is fulfilling a longtime dream with this flight. Starting from Oakland, Calif., she will make 17 stops as the flight path proceeds to Denver, Colo., and Miami, Fla., before skirting the coast of South America, crossing Africa, and traversing the South Pacific with stops in Malé, Singapore and Oceania before heading toward Honolulu. The trip is scheduled to end in Oakland on July 11. Just in time for Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture Oshkosh, where Earhart will make an appearance.

Track Earhart's progress on her nearly 28,000-mile route through a Honeywell-created website at www.AmeliaEarhartProject.com or on Twitter using #FlyWithAmelia.
