ARTIFACT: Rare 1930's American Motorless Aviation Corporation Cape Cod, Massachusetts Glider School 1st Class Glider badge by Whitehead & Hoag in Newark, New Jersey. The AMAC in Cape Cod was one of two glider/soaring schools in the country, the other was located near San Diego. Glider pilots were trained to fly the aircraft without a motor, relying on wind/air currents and body weight/position. J.C. Penney Jr., was a glider aficionado and once held an invitational in Cape Cod for prominent German gliders and wished to promote Soaring and established the American Motorless Aviation club to support his passion in aviation. At the end of WWI glider pilots were on the rise, but the use of glider aircraft by Nazi Germany during WWII and the arrival of The Great Depression all but halted its growth. The badge shows three white gulls against a dark blue background with the letters: "AMAC" below.

VINTAGE: Circa 1930's

SIZE: Approximately 5/8" in diameter


ATTACHMENT: Single post with screwback and stabilizer pin.
