A Century of Transatlantic Flying

Since the dawn of ‘reliable’ flight, aviators dreamed of increased range and long-distance travel.

RAS Conference

This conference – which will be held at No.4 Hamilton Place, Royal Aeronautical Society Headquarters, London W1J 7BQ on Monday 3rd June 11:45-17:00 – marks aeronautical anniversaries which arise this year: the first non-stop transatlantic flight and the first double crossing of the Atlantic by air (both in 1919) and the first flights of Concorde and the Boeing 747 in 1969. There are also papers on British airliner projects which competed for the transatlantic route, and the ferrying of military aircraft from the USA during the Second World War.

Here are the conference programme and booking information.
