On Friday July 11, 2014, Amelia  Earhart, a former reporter from Denver, Colorado USA, completed an around-the-world journey.

 

Amelia Rose Earhart (no relation to the famous aviatrix) began her trip from Oakland California on June 26th. Amelia and her navigator piloted a Pilatus PC-12 more than 24,000 nautical miles, making 17 stops along the way.

 

The Pilatus PC-12 is a single-engine turboprop passenger and cargo aircraft manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft of Switzerland.

 

The company’s newest product is the Pilatus PC-21, a training aircraft for a new generation of military pilots. It follows the company’s highly successful PC-12, which is currently the biggest selling single-engine commercial aircraft in the world.
