Biographical / Historical:
The Aviation Foundation of America, Inc., a nonprofit public charity, sponsored the re-creation of the National Air Tours in the fall of 2003. The National Air Tours, also know as the Ford Air Tours, originally took place from 1925-31. They were conceived by a group of "air-minded" Detroit businessmen, receiving significant support from Henry Ford and his son, Edsel B. Ford, to introduce Americans to the concept of air travel
