The original air tours were an efficiency contest held each year from 1925 through 1931. Initially called the Commercial Airplane Reliability Tour, they were subsequently promoted as "The Commercial Airplane Reliability Tour for the Edsel B. Ford Trophy", sometimes shortened to the Ford Reliability Tour and later, the National Air Tour.
In this coming year of 2003, we will celebrate the Centennial of Powered Flight as well as the Centennial of the Ford Motor Company. It will have been 75 years ago that the National Air Tours were at their zenith as well. If ever there were a year to celebrate the development of aviation, 2003 is it. And, what better way to do it than to re-create the National Air Tour.
Want to learn more about the original National Air Tours? The complete history is available in the book, The The Ford Air Tours: 1925-1931 (item #5991).
