Zara Rutherford

The youngest woman to fly solo around the world in a single-engine aircraft

In recognition of her record-breaking journey, becoming the youngest female pilot to fly solo around the world between August 18, 2021 and January 2022;  for her encouragement and support of women to pursue STEM subjects and to join the aviation industry; for inspiring the next generation of aviators to pursue their dreams. The AeroTime Global Executive Committee recognises the positive influence of these efforts and the significance of the impact on the aviation industry and its people, both today and into the future.
