Watch the video above to get to know the first female member of the Red Bull Air Force. "[Amy] is hands down one of the most famous female skydivers there is," said Jon DeVore.

"I like to motivate and influence females to push themselves in a direction that maybe otherwise they wouldn't," says Chmelecki. "It's one of my major motivations of skydiving."

Feeling blessed to call her hobby and passion also her career, Chmelecki offers encouragement for others to pursue their dreams: "Anyone can do it," she says of making skydiving her career. "No matter what it is you love, there's a way to make it your career. Just follow your heart and go for it.

"This is what I would do if I had all the money in the world," said Chmelecki, "And that's the truth."

See Amy motivate a group of female flyers into an impromptu 'huck jam' – multiple flyers in one indoor skydiving facility, performing a freestyle jam session. "Tunnel flying now is developing into its own sport," says Chmelecki.
