Charles Lindbergh flew alone over the Atlantic Ocean for more than 33 hours in May 1927, becoming the first person to fly successfully from New York to Paris. That short period of time -- little more than a single day -- would forever change his life, and the future course of aviation. However, the successful transatlantic flight was only the beginning of Lindbergh's achievements. Charles Lindbergh offers a fascinating peek into the evolution of aviation -- from the early days of daredevil pilots to the successful development of commercial passenger service and the modern airports we know today. Learn more about Lindbergh's story of triumph and tragedy -- the triumph of a pioneer who dreamed of new adventures and then made them come true, and the tragedy of a solitary man burdened by sudden, overwhelming celebrity.

Charles A. Lindbergh and the American Dilemma

The Conflict of Technology and Human Values

Throughout his life, Lindbergh s value structure, interests, and activities shifted and moved, yielding a conflict between instinct and intellect. Both its presence in his life and his readjustment of values in accordance with it are representative of his time and culture. He moved, with the twentieth century itself, from a faith in technology to a disenchantment with it and finally to a balanced resolution that synthesized the seeming oppositions of technology and the human spirit. This emphasis on a balance between technology and humanity, and Lindbergh s belief that maintained the complementarity rather than the opposition of the two forces, finally culminated in a post-technological mysticism, a teleological worldview of science and nature as aspects of the same physical and spiritual environment."

Als die Welt am Abend des 21. Mai 1927 dem jungen Piloten Charles A. Lindbergh zujubelte, feierte sie den Wagemut eines bis dahin unvorstellbaren Unternehmens: ein Mensch war allein und ohne Zwischenlandung von New York nach Paris über den Ozean geflogen. Fliegen heißt für Lindbergh »vom Wein der Götter trinken« – und schreibend vermittelt er uns dieses Gefühl, das sich aus Besessenheit und Seligkeit zusammensetzt.

Charles Lindbergh and the Rise of American Aviation

In late May 1927 an inexperienced and unassuming 25-year-old Air Mail pilot from rural Minnesota stunned the world by making the first non-stop transatlantic flight. A spectacular feat of individual daring and collective technological accomplishment, Charles Lindbergh's flight from New York to Paris ushered in America's age of commercial aviation. In The Flight of the Century, Thomas Kessner takes a fresh look at one of America's greatest moments, explaining how what was essentially a publicity stunt became a turning point in history. He vividly recreates the flight itself and the euphoric reaction to it on both sides of the Atlantic, and argues that Lindbergh's amazing feat occurred just when the world--still struggling with the disillusionment of WWI--desperately needed a hero to restore a sense of optimism and innocence. Kessner also shows how new forms of mass media made Lindbergh into the most famous international celebrity of his time, casting him in the role of a humble yet dashing American hero of rural origins and traditional values. Much has been made of Lindbergh's personal integrity and his refusal to cash in on his fame. But Kessner reveals that Lindbergh was closely allied with, and managed by, a group of powerful businessmen--Harry Guggenheim, Dwight Morrow, and Henry Breckenridge chief among them--who sought to exploit aviation for mass transport and massive profits. Their efforts paid off as commercial air traffic soared from 6,000 passengers in 1926 to 173,000 passengers in 1929. Kessner's book is the first to fully explore Lindbergh's central role in promoting the airline industry--the rise of which has influenced everything from where we live to how we wage war and do business. The Flight of the Century sheds new light on one of America's fascinatingly enigmatic heroes and most transformative moments.
