AHEAD OF HIS TIME
The Geoffery De Havilland story
Throughout the 1930’s it was one man’s dream to use a radical material to build the fastest aircraft in the world. The material was wood, and his name was Geoffrey De Havilland. He was known as a determined innovator, someone who led from the front and had the ability to see the vision and get the job done.
As early as the 1930’s De Havilland knew that light weight wooden aircraft were the key to greater speeds. In 1934 his twin engine Comet won the London to Melbourne air race. With speeds of over 200 miles per hour the aircraft flew halfway around the world in just 77 hours, a ship would take 4 weeks.
