Summary
This work looks at the new activity of transcontinental civil flying in the 1930s and its extension of British imperial attitudes and practices. It gathers new evidence to distil the age, class, gender and occupational profiles of people who used private and commercial aircraft and looks at how flying in the period was romanticised.
