She needed to carry a lot of fuel to fly long distances without stopping. A lighter weight will use less fuel per mile and a larger percentage of the total weight could be the fuel if the plane itself weighed as little as possible.

She got her first pilots licence when she was 31. Before that, you didn't need one if flying a private plane in USA.

She didn't have weapons. She was a pilot and didn't need weapons.

If you mean on her final flight, she needed more fuel and a better radio.

She worked at many different places and jobs in her lifetime. You need to be more specific.

Amelia never had an aircraft called 'Friendship'. -You may be thinking of her 1928 flight across the Atlantic in a Fokker Friendship flown by Wilmer Stultz. This was NOT Amelia's aircraft and as far as I know it did not have a name. Sounds like you need to pay more attention to detail in your reading.

Amelia Earhart was a woman who thrived on facing the impossible. She was dedicated, vivacious, and brave. She was aware of the risks everytime she set out to accomplish another goal. She was willing to die if that was the price she had to pay for satisfying her need for adventure. Amelia hated endangering others, however. She never let her personal ambitions get in the way of safety precautions when other people were involved.

She was transmitting on 6,210 and 3,105 Kcs, but both of those frequencies need a very long antenna. She had apparently cut this long antenna off earlier, due to the difficulty of constantly winding it in after each transmission.

The disadvantage of an inclined plane is you need a greater force.

In case the plane or jet malfunctions they would need a parachute to escape from the plane before it crashed.

If you want Amelia to evolve, you need to get her to level 10 and then go into a new level. When you do, she will say something, and then you'll get the option to promote her into a cavalier or knight.

Well... they need to know how to fly a plane

You could transport it yes. But not use it. Not sure why you need one on a plane

The minimum speed of an aircraft to stay airborne is 280kph. This may vary from plane to plane. A smaller plane like Cessna would need a speed less than that. The biggest like Airbus A380 may need much more than that.ANSWERIt depends on the design of the airplane. A large passenger jet lands at about 140 Knots (or about same in MPH). A light-weight glider can land as slow as 50mph without stalling.
