Cosmopolitan jumped at the chance to engage Amelia Earhart's celebrity. As the magazine's aviation editor, Earhart answered readers' questions about flying and the burgeoning commercial aviation industry. She also sought to normalize the experience of flying (her mother enjoyed a good book as she flew across the country, everyone will be commuting by autogiro in the future) and encouraged women to become "air-minded," promoting the idea that aviation represented the pinnacle of modernity and progress that could bridge distances and bring cultures together.
