HER INCREDIBLE STORY
"It doesn't matter what age you are, it matters what you think and how you feel."
~ Vicki Van Meter - Time Magazine
FLY ALONG WITH VICKI!
On September 18, 1993, at the age of 11, Victoria (Vicki) Van Meter set a record. She became the youngest female pilot to make a transcontinental flight. In June of the following year, at the age of 12, she flew a Cessna 210 from Augusta, Maine to Glasgow, Scotland, establishing the record as the youngest female pilot to make a transatlantic flight. She continued on with stops in London, England, Paris, France, and Frankfurt Germany.
In her travels, Vicki served as a good-will ambassador for the City of Augusta, Maine, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the United States of America. After her flights, she spoke across the country to people of all ages encouraging them to follow their dreams.
