Solo Woman Gaby Kennard's World Flight
by Gaby Kennard

This is a true story of how an 'ordinary woman', in her mid-forties, mother of one young son and a teenage daughter, set out to achieve the seemingly impossible.

“In 1989 Gaby Kennard became the first Australian woman to fly solo around the world, in a single engine Piper Saratoga.”

It was an heroic flight, one that she dedicated to American aviator Amelia Earhart, who disappeared on a world flight in 1937.

Gaby was faced with instrument malfunction before she even left Australia. She was robbed of precious survival gear in Rabaul. In unforecast winds she came close to running out of fuel and was forced to make an emergency landing on a high security airfield.

Her engine cut out over the Pacific and she plummeted thousands of feet. Buffeted by severe electrical storms over the Atlantic she was forced to divert from her course.
