Aviation history

Norwegian aviation for a hundred years

Hardly any other phenomenon such as aviation has changed Norwegians’ lives in the last hundred years.

Read the story of Norway, the reborn nation that long hesitated to use aircraft, but which ended up as an aviation nation of rank. This is the story of madness and daring, of organized mass tourism to exotic places and lonely expeditions to the most godforsaken places on the planet. It is also the story of war and air strikes, and of military build-up under the cover of the Cold War. But most of all, this is the story of how aviation has changed the lives of ordinary people dramatically in Norway over the last hundred years.
