Despite the recession, which happened in 1945, 50 Stratocruisers have been manufactured, but still with out an airline customer. Then finally in November 1945, Pan American World Airways became the first customer of the company as they purchased 20 Stratocruisers for a total cost of 24 $ million. Boeing’s president Juan Trippe was satisfied with the company and was confident that this expensive aircraft will be successful for the airline. Now, 2 years after the aircrafts have been purchased, the first commercial flights with passengers on board have
The beginnings of the commercial aviation industry were initiated by the Airmail Services. The expansion of air mail influenced the developing infrastructure and procedures for what was to become a very large industry of commercial aviation. The development of the U.S. Post Office Airmail Service (May 15, 1918, through September 9, 1927) major events and individuals that contributed to the success of this industry are explained. There were many issues and several problems many aviation pioneers encountered while creating the U.S. Post Office Airmail Service. Two of these problems and issues are included here as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each.
The airplane is the single most important American invention of the 20th century. The first airplane was created by two bicycle-making brothers from Dayton, Ohio named Wilbur and Orville Wright (Schlager). Their first powered flight dramatically impacted the way war was, and will be, waged forever. Wilbur and Orville’s invention also improved the transportation of goods for Americans and their businesses all over the country. Air travel was another positive result of the invention of the airplane.
He is also known for his love of flying. Richard Bach served in the United States Navy and the New Jersey Air National Guards fighter wing. His books are mainly autobiographies inspired from his life events. He also worked as a technical writer for ‘Douglas Aircraft’ and a writer for the magazine ‘Flying’. Bach’s books were mostly related to flying in some way.
World War I was the first major war in which airplanes were used as part of the military. The aircraft was created by the Wright Brothers in 1903, just 11 years before the start of World War I. When the war first started, the aircraft played a minor role in the war, but, at the end of the war, the air force has become an important branch of the armed forces. A biplane is a fixed-wing aircraft with two main wings that stacked one above with the other. The ruling is the first aircraft to fly controlled.

By the age of six Armstrong was already intrigued by airplanes, and he went on to take his first ride in one 10 years later when he got his pilot license. He was very serious about being a pilot, as he built a wind tunnel (a tunnel through which air is forced at controlled speeds to study the effects of its flow) in his basement in order to test model planes that he had created out. He started with flying lessons at the age of fourteen. But young Armstrong wasn 't only fascinated by airplanes at this age, he was also interested in outer space, a curiosity fueled by his neighbor and friend who possessed a powerful telescope. Using this Armstrong was able to see the stars and the moons, and dream of one day going up into space, a dream that would later be achieved.
It requires a lot of hard work and dedication, and includes a minimum of four years in college. Mankind has always had an obsession with flying. The Wright brothers made the first airplane that was able to fly and land on its own power, and after WWII mankind become obsessed with reaching the moon. In 1969 Neil Armstrong did just that. All of these works were made possible by the
(An interesting side note: The day after the first two Gnats were delivered to Finland, Finnish Air Force Major Lauri Pekuri exceeded the speed of sound in a Gnat, the first time this speed had been achieved by the Finns.) Two Gnats were also sold to Yugoslavia, but the bulk of sales went to India, which purchased 40 airframes in various stages of completion and, under license, built 175 of the aircraft at the Hindustani Aircraft facilities at Bangalore as the Gnat Mk.II
INTRODUCTION: Indian aviation industry is one of the fastest growing airline industry in the world. The history of Indian aviation industry started in December 1912 with its first domestic air route between Karachi and Delhi. It was opened by the Indian air service in collaboration with the UK based imperial airways as an extension of London-Karachi flight of the imperial airways.
