TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Eula Pearl Carter Scott learned to fly a plane by the age of 13, and was listed as the youngest pilot in the United States at one time.
Pearl Scott is a member of the Chickasaw Nation Hall of Fame and was remembered Saturday afternoon at the Natchez Trace Visitor's Center in Tupelo.
Scott was born in Marlow, Oklahoma in 1915, the daughter of a wealthy businessman named George Carter.
His wife, Lucy, was an orginal enrollee of the Chickasaw Nation.
So spectacular is her story, that the Chickasaw Nation made a movie about her called "Pearl".
They showed that movie at the Natchez Trace Visitors Center Saturday.
The movie depicts Pearl as a lively 12-year-old driving her father's car.
Her father was blind and did not have a problem allowing Pearl to drive.
By age 13, she could fly a plane as well as any man, and was trained by legendary aviator Wiley Post, a family friend.
"For Women's History Month, which is March of each year, there is a national theme. And this year's national theme was women in technology, science,engineering, and mathematics. And we thought with the rich cultural history of the Chickasaw here along the Natchez Trace. It would tie-in perfectly that theme of technology," said Amy Genke of the Natchez Trace Parkway.
Scott continued to fly becoming a main attraction throughout the nation.
She continued aerial exploits and became a stunt pilot after she marrried a local farm boy at the age of fourteen.
Scott thought about becoming a skydiver but here father and husband nixed that idea.
She gave up her wings for good following a near-tragic accident during an air show.
Scott later became a member of the Chickasaw legislature.
Eula Pearl Carter Scott was later inducted into the Oklahoma Aviation and Space Hall of Fame and the International Women's Air and Space Museum Hall of Fame.
She passed away in 2005.
