First of all, I am a lover of all things vintage aviation. Does not really matter what era, but I do profess a fascination with the 1930’s. A young man becoming a pilot in the 1930’s flew aircraft, and wore attire, not far removed from what his father had used twenty years earlier.
But that young man of the 30’s, if he sticks to flying for fifteen or twenty years, will fly twice the speed of sound, and be attired in flying clothing not too far removed from what is worn today. Such was the exponential growth of aviation technology during this period.
