Max in Cockpit

Max Conrad was considered the foremost civil aviator in the world. He was the second man to fly a single engine light plane solo across the Atlantic Ocean after Charles Lindbergh. By the end of his flying career of over half a century, he had logged more than 50,000 hours, crossed the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in light aircraft over 200 times and set numerous light plane endurance and distance records.

In 1964, Max Conrad received the prestigious Harmon Trophy for the most outstanding international achievement in the art of flying.
