The following year, she received her instrument rating, and logged numerous hours shuttling her father between Cape Cod and Wilmington. In 1934, she and her brother Richard flew their Waco outfitted with pontoons, to South America and 60 miles up the Amazon River, and as far south as Rio de Janeiro logging more than 1000 hours in their Waco.
