Anita Snook

Dean Dillopolis, People Historian

Amelia Earhart had to learn how to fly from someone.  That someone was another pioneer pilot named Anita Snook.  People called her Neta.  She was born on Valentines Day in 1896.  She was rejected from the first flight school she applied to because she was female.  However, she finally began learning to fly at the Davenport Flying School in Iowa.  In 1921 Amelia Earhart approached Snook and asked her for lessons.  Earhart’s parents would only let her learn from a female.  It cost her $500 for 12 hours.  During the training Snook and Earhart became great friends.
