Howard's Golden Age is included in The Golden Age of Aviation Series.

After building four of the most successful and famous air racers in the world, in the 1930s, Pete, Mike, Ike and Mr. Mulligan, Benny Howard’s fame increased with each passing year. With such notoriety, Benny Howard was able to realize his dream -- that of manufacturing and selling commercial aircraft to the flying public throughout the world.

Benny Howard was also a highly acclaimed test pilot, having test flown many aircraft for several aircraft manufacturers during his career.

Howard's Golden Age

This Benny Howard story is a story of struggle, fame, fortune, love, depression, failure and success. All of Howard’s models are featured here, including all of Howard's Damn Good Airplanes: the Howard DGA-1, DGA-2, DGA-3, Pete; DGA-4, Mike; DGA-5, Ike; DGA-6, Mr. Mulligan; DGA-7, DGA-8, DGA-9, DGA-10, DGA-11, DGA-12, Howard DGA-15 and the Howard DGA-18.

The Howard Aircraft Corporation built hundreds of DGA-15 type aircraft for the U.S. Navy. Most of the existing Howard aircraft flying today are former Navy DGA-15 type aircraft.

The historical text is enhanced with numerous original photographs of the era and with 3-view scale drawings of each of the DGA models. The 3-views were drawn by the internationally acclaimed, late Paul Matt, or drawn by the author himself.

The Golden Age of Aviation Series highlights a number of aircraft manufacturers during the 1900s, 1910s, 1920s, 1930s & 1940s. The series presents an historical look at Aviation’s Golden Years through detailed text, numerous photos, internationally acclaimed 3-view airplane scale drawings, archival materials and original magazine ads of the Golden Age of Aviation.
