In 1954 he won the Pulitzer prize for literature with his work “spirit ir st Louis”, a story about his famous flight.

Charles Lindbergh’s Biography

Lindbergh was born in Detroit, Michigan, to a Swedish immigrant family. His father practiced politics and later was a congressman, tribune from which he showed his opposition to the entry of the United States in the First World War; his mother was a chemistry teacher. Soon the young Charles began to show interest in the machines. In 1922 he left his mechanical engineering studies, joined the training program of the flight and mechanical school of the Nebraska Aircraft Corporation in Lincoln where he made his first flight on April 1, 1922 as a passenger in a Lincoln-Standard biplane “Tourabout” “Piloted by Otto Timm and later bought his own plane, a Curtiss JN-4 Jenny. In 1924 he began training in the air corps of the United States Army. After completing his first promotion, he worked as a civilian pilot on the San Luis mail line in the 1920s.

He decided to opt for a prize of 25 & nbsp; 000 & nbsp; dollars offered in 1919 by the American nationalized French philanthropist Raymond B. Orteig for the first pilot to perform a nonstop transatlantic flight between New York and Paris. In his single-engine monoplane Ryan NYP (a modified Ryan M-2), dubbed Spirit of St. Louis, Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Airfield (Long Island) on May 20, 1927 and after a 33-hour, 32-hour flight minutes, landed at the airport of Le Bourget, near Paris.

On board Spirit of St. Louis Lindbergh toured 16 countries in Latin America between December 13, 1927 and February 8, 1928. Known as “Good Will Tour,” he included stops in Mexico (where he also met his future wife, Anne, the daughter of US Ambassador Dwight Morrow), Guatemala, British Honduras, Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, the Canal Zone, Colombia, Venezuela, Santo Tomás, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba, covering 9,390 miles (15,110 km) in only 116 hours of flight.

Later he became a commercial airline advisor. Charles Lindbergh also piloted the first official flight of the airline Mexicana de Aviación.

In 1932, the kidnapping and subsequent murder of his 20-year-old son, Charles Lindbergh Jr., attracted national and international interest. A German-born carpenter named Bruno Hauptmann was found guilty and sentenced to death.

The Lindbergh family moved to Europe in 1935 and Lindbergh was able to study the organization and operation of the air forces of several countries. Upon his return to the United States in 1939 he toured the country giving lectures against the war, and declaring himself a supporter of American isolationism. He declared himself an open supporter of Adolf Hitler and supporter of selective births, so he was forced to resign from office (Philip Roth’s novel, The plot against America, tells a situation in which an anti-Semitic and pro-Hitler Charles Lindbergh access to the US presidency after winning Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1940 elections). However, during the Second World War, he acted as a civilian technician for the aircraft manufacturing companies, and carried out missions in the Pacific Ocean and in Europe to the service of the American air forces, with which he managed to recover some of his public image.
