Aviatrix gives listener courage we hear (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

earhart

Here is my best explanation:

'aviatrix' is the definition.

(amelia earhart)

'listener courage we hear' is the subsidiary indication.

'listener' becomes 'ear'.

'courage' becomes 'heart' (heart is a kind of courage).

'we hear' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.

'heart' is a homophone of 'hart'.

'ear'+'hart'='earhart'

'gives' is the link.

(Other definitions for earhart that I've seen before include "Amelia ......, American pioneer aviator", "Amelia __ , aviator, d. 1937", "Amelia -, US aviation pioneer", "Amelia . . . . . . ., U.S. pioneer aviator", "Amelia --, first woman to fly the Atlantic", "Amelia . . . . . . . , pioneer aviatrix", "Amelia --, air pioneer", "Amelia ....... was American flying pioneer" and "Amelia ....... was pioneering American aviator".)
