The 1920s and 1930s were times of innovation and excitement in aviation and these thrilling stories will be shared with you through lectures, films and photos. During this period, airplanes evolved from biplanes to multi-engine monoplanes with closed cockpits. Airports were being built, thousands attended airshows and famous pilots emerged - pushing the boundaries of what was possible. Among others, discuss Lindbergh's solo crossing of the Atlantic, Richard Byrd's flights across the Poles, and the legacies of Amelia Earhart and Ruth Nicols - daring women who lobbied to join all-male air races.
