The Colombian Aerial Navigation Company Between 1919 and 1921. An Entrepreneurial Adventure in South America
AbstractThe early participation of Colombian entrepreneurs in the establishment of airlines in Colombia during the first decade of the twentieth century was marked by risk, faced with an aviation industry that recently began worldwide.
