PERHAPS no other industry has ever mad such spectacular progress in the first forty years of its existence as Air Transport. The remarkable advances of the airlines - more than 100 million people travel by air annually, and last year about twice as many flew the Atlantic as crossed by sea - have been made possible primarily by the rapid development of the transport aeroplane. This book is an historical survey of transport aircraft throughout the world since the start of civil aviation in 1919.
Peter W. Brooks is an author specialised in aviation. He has written several books such as Historic Airships ( 1973 ) and Cierva Autogiros : Development of Rotary Wing Flight ( 1988 ).
