A Clue a Day

Today, I begin to offer clues to a question I believe every one of my readers will find both amusing and educational. This is the first of five clues, and on December 26, I'll reveal the answer and the names of anyone who emails me with the name of the person in question.

Oh, and no fair cheating and Googling this person to achieve superiority...I'm looking for those aviation historians who can name this person from their own personal knowledge database, without having to look anything up on the www.

So away we go:

Clue #1: This person flew a basically stock 1953 Cessna 180 Skywagon 23, 206 miles solo to become the first pilot to accomplish this pioneering feat.

Email me HERE if you know the answer.
