Aviation in Northern California 1910-1939 Volume I: San Francisco Bay Area
Pioneer aviators and risk takers forming flying schools, building airports, manufacturing aircraft, and pilot competition.

Aviation in Northern California 1910-1939 is the only book to give a detailed account of early flying in the Bay Area. Historian Allen Herr recalls the aviation pioneers who flew weekly exhibitions promoting the Panama-Pacific International Exposition for fifteen months prior to its San Francisco opening. These pioneers formed flying schools, built airports, manufactured aircraft, and competed against each other. Herr captures the energy behind the Bay Area aviation movement, tells who was involved, and describes the effects of their extraordinary determination and achievements. --Larry Jackson
