In the framework of the exhibition 100 years of Portuguese Naval Aviation, Carlos Lobão will hold a lecture on the central position of the Port of Horta in the library.
Naval aviation has been present in the Port of Horta since the first attempts of Atlantic crossing by plane. Horta is not only linked to experimental voyages, but also to commercial aviation. Due to its central position and the well protected bay it has been the preferred place for stopovers. Carlos Lobão, an expert in the field, will talk us through the history, how it worked, what effects naval aviation had on the society of Faial.
