**LOW IN STOCK**
Amelia Earhart was a pioneer, conquering the male-dominated aviation world of the 1930s. This premium Italian leather necktie is thoughtfully designed to represent a no-fuss uniform look, symbolic of the jackets aviators wore during the early years of flight.
In 1928, after taking flight lessons from a female pilot, Amelia gave the public their first glimpse of what it was like to travel over the Atlantic Ocean - as a passenger that is. She was the first woman to make the trek and was commissioned to write about her adventure, however at this point, Amelia was already a fairly trained pilot and was ready to take on these record-setting flights herself. She famously stated, “There is more to life than being a passenger.”
It was then her non-stop transatlantic flight in 1932 that propelled Amelia into stardom and the record books. Making her the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, from Newfoundland, Canada to Ireland. The nonstop flight took nearly fifteen hours. She then followed with a string of record-setting flights: traveling nonstop across the United States, from Hawaii to the United States mainland, LA to Mexico City, and Mexico City to Newark.
She is unequivocally a trailblazer, but not just for her accomplishments in flight. Amelia was a determined individual that challenged gender norms, lecturing across the country on aviation and inspiring women to pursue their passions. She was also an accomplished writer, contributing to Cosmopolitan and various magazines, as well as writing books about her own flight adventures. Her name was tied to many organizations as well as first President and co-founder to the Ninety-Nines, an all-female aviation group consisting of none-other-than 99 women. Her popularity even transcended into luggage and clothing, making her the first celebrity to have a clothing line named after them.
