Louisiana Aviation: An Extraordinary History in Photographs by Vincent P. Sr. Caire

Louisiana entrepreneurs and pilots were among the first to advance the idea of air travel, improve aircraft design, and usher in the Golden Age of Aviation. They developed aerial crop dusting, initiated airmail routes, pushed the limits of stunt flying, and entertained spectators with air races. With over twenty years of experience in the aviation industry, pilot and freelance writer Vincent P. Caire chronicles the state's contribution to the history of flight in nearly 200 vintage and contemporary photographs, many never-before published. Photos of early aviation pioneer John Moisant, air racing champion General James Doolittle, barnstormer Roscoe Turner, and C.E. Woolman, creator of Delta Airlines, reflect Louisiana's zeal for aeronautics.

A captivating visual tour spanning one-hundred years, Louisiana Aviation captures the state's contribution to air history, evident in Louisiana's seventy airports, 5,000 aircraft, 7,000 pilots, and numerous airshows still in operation today.
