KIRKUS REVIEW

Some profile tributes to the men who made the first flights possible, these present names and angles of aviation which are for the most part little known. Among them are Jerome Hunsaker, who established aeronautics as a science; Colonel Bane who fought for a research program at McCook field; Erik Nelson's Round-The-World Flight of the Army Air Service; Donald Bruner who made night flying practicable; Hoffman who perfected the parachute; Bill Stout who ""sold"" aviation to Henry Ford; Juan Trippe who created Pan American Airways; Lawrance who designed new engines and Glen Martin who designed big biplanes; these and others played a part in the development of a new field and a new science.... A book for boys as well as aeronautical-minded adults.
