Eddie August Schneider (1911-1940) was an American aviator who set three transcontinental airspeed records for pilots under the age of twenty-one in 1930. He was the youngest certificated pilot in the United States, and the youngest certified airplane mechanic. In 1934 he married Gretchen Frances Hahnen (1902-1986). He died in an airplane crash in 1940, while training another pilot, when a Boeing-Stearman Model 75 belonging to the United States Navy Reserve overtook him and clipped his plane's tail at Floyd Bennett Field.
