Join us at Flight Path to welcome nonfiction author Jason Ryan who will discuss his new book, Race to Hawaii: The 1927 Dole Derby and the Thrilling First Flights that Opened the Pacific, which details the first attempts to cross the Pacific Ocean by airplane. Ryan’s book documents three principal flight events across the Pacific, including journeys attempted by the Army, Navy and a group of civilian flyers competing in an air derby between Oakland and the island of Oahu. Among the brave men and one woman who flew for Hawaii were several Hollywood stunt fliers, and Ryan promises to share tales of their audacious flying antics before the movie cameras and across the ocean
The Speaker Series are free one-hour presentations offered by Flight Path Museum where we host speakers on engaging and inspiring aviation and aerospace-related topics.
We look forward to seeing you! Jason will have copies of his book available for purchase.
