Early commercial passenger aviation

Public

This paper explores the early beginnings of civilian passenger aviation. Starting with the pre-World War One roots of flying, the lines development are followed for the United Kingdom until 1924 and the United States until 1930. The main focus is not the time period themselves, but each country's differing path to establishing solid air transport systems. Both countries had extremely different growth environments, yet the same result came about in each case: a successful, established airline industry.
