In the spring of 1922 two of Portugal's most noted aviators, Sacadura Cabral and Gago Coutinho, made the first flight from Europe to South America, flying from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro via the Canaries and Cabo Verde. It was the first long distance flight in which rigorous methods of aerial navigation were used, and Gago Coutinho contributed a lengthy section to this Relatorio describing his methods (pp. 45-62). Sacadura Cabral describes the selection and construction of the airplane, preparations for the journey and its stages. It is illustrated with photographs taken in the course of the trip.*** Grande enciclopédia XII, 22-4. NUC: NN. Bookseller Inventory # 35692
