Amelia Mary Earhart was a noted American aviation pioneer and author. She was the first woman to receive the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross, awarded for becoming the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Earhart was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots.
Florence Leontine Lowe, "Pancho" Barnes (July 22, 1901 – March 30, 1975) was a pioneer aviatrix, the founder of the first test pilots union and the owner of the Happy Bottom Riding Club. She was a member of the Ninety-Nines, and raced in the Women's Air Derby. With you-know-who.
