Beginning with the jet age of the 1940s and 1950s, air travel has been at the forefront of technology, culture, and luxury. The Art of Flying explores its fascinating evolution, curating a vibrant cultural history from the mid-twentieth century to the present. From technological developments such as pressurized cabins and the Concorde to the flair of custom crew uniforms by renowned designers including Dior, Emilio Pucci, and Moncler, as well as its interplay with architecture and art, air travel throughout history has been at once a reflection of its time and a symbol of the cutting edge. In partnership with VistaJet and lavishly illustrated with over seven decades of imagery, The Art of Flying celebrates the golden past and the dream of luxury air travel today.
