Colin Hobbs has spent almost all his career (over 35 years) in the civil
aviation industry, managing Airports and Airlines and has a deep
knowledge of the business. He is a retired Fellow of the Chartered
Institute of Transport and the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
He will tell us the story of the battle to be the first to conquer flights
across the Atlantic Ocean including the competition between Britain
and the USA and the incredible courage of those who tried. We will
find out who won in the end.
