Illustration Daily – Day 90: Pilot

The final set of clothing for my paper doll! A printable set will be available soon! These outfits are based on Amelia Earhart, and Geraldine “Jerrie” Mock both ground-breaking women in aviation. Earhart holds the record for first solo navigation across the Atlantic Ocean though she is probably most famous for her disappearance in her attempt to circumnavigate the globe. Jerrie Mock never came close to having Earhart’s name recognition, but she did achieve the record the cost Earhart her life. In 1964 the homemaker with only 750 hours of flight time became the first woman to fly solo around the world in just shy of 30 days.
