Sheila Scott OBE (27 April 1922 – 20 October 1988), was an English aviator, born in Worcester.  She broke over 100 aviation records through her long distance flight endeavours, which included a 34,000-mile (55,000 km) “world and a half” flight in 1971. On this flight, she became the first person to fly over the North Pole in a small aircraft.

In 1943, she started a career as an actress as Sheila Scott, a name she maintained long after she stopped acting. She had a short marriage from 1945 to 1950 to Rupert Bellamy then in 1958 she learned to fly going solo at Thruxton Aerodome after nine months of training. Her first aircraft was a Thruxton Jackaroo (converted Tiger Moth) G-APAM then in April 1966 she bought her Piper Comanche 260B G-ATOY named Myth Too in which she set ninety world records. Her first solo round the world flight commenced at London Heathrow on 18 May 1966 and returned on 20 June 1966, having covered approximately 31,000 miles (49,890 kilometers) on 189 flying hours in 34 days. In 1969-70 she flew solo around the world in the same aircraft a second time.

She was the founder, and the first governor, of the British branch of the Ninety Nines, an association for licensed women pilots, which had been created by Amelia Earhart. She was a member of the International Association of Licensed Women Pilots, and of the Whirly Girls, an association of women helicopter pilots.
