The Golden Age book is filled with tales of romance and adventure, of daring and bravado, as pilots break records, astound the public and prepare for war on a global scale.

Their achievements became legend, and their aircraft became revered airplanes of the Golden Age of Aviation.

Aviation Century: The Golden Age

Between the World Wars a new wave of aviation pioneers took the technological advances forged in the heat of battle and applied them to aircraft in exciting new ways. An unprecedented growth in the manufacture of affordable light aircraft occurred, providing ambitious, extraordinary individuals with the means to conquer the sky.

Aviators raced to be the first to fly over oceans, cross jungles and ice caps, look down on the continents' highest peaks, and travel distances faster than ever before. Aerial daredevils entertained a wide audience through flying circuses and air shows. The spirit of adventure thrived after World War II with larger air shows and more thrilling aerobatics.

In this book, Dan Patterson's photographs of preserved and restored aircraft in museum and private collections are combined with rare archival photographs. Forewords for Aviation Century: The Golden Age are by aviation legends Alex Henshaw and Tom Poberezny.


The Golden Age: 288 pgs, HB w/dust jacket, 9 x 11, 320 color and b&w photos, bibliography, index.
