Its detailed contents and beautiful design make it an exceptional reference document as well as a collector’s item.
The book begins with the development of world aviation, continues with the growth of aviation in Latin America, to then describe in depth the progress of aeronautics in Costa Rica. It relates the heroic times of the beginnings, in 1912, the romantic epoch of the consolidation of airlines and the development of air mail, up to the modern era of air transportation and the first steps in space exploration. In addition, four annexes contain a chronology of Costa Rican aviation, a summary of the main flights between 1912 and 1946, the history of La Sabana Airport and a synopsis about aerophilately.
