Amelia Earhart did not do any of the actual controling of the aircraft- George Allan Hancock did the actual controls and navigation. The trick that fooled the subsequent donors to her was the use of the word “fly” which at the time had only been previously used to describe the pilot/builder/inventor,etc. because they were the only one in the aircraft. Now, in the 21st century, the word fly is used to describe the person as a passenger not the pilot. Amelia Earhart made a fortune in attracting money from those who thought her to be so wonderful and so forth- those donors were her victims. After that successful scam she tried to frauduently gain even more money on a around the world flight,with somebody else doing the piloting and navigation-her greed got her that time. My friend George Allan Hancock said to me many times that he was glad that he refused to be part of what proved to be her last scam because that refusal saved his life.
