The Wright Bros Medal

banner

     "Jim Floyd was awarded the Wright Bros. Medal in 1950 by the Society of Automotive Engineers, for a paper presented to the Society on the design of North America's first jet transport, the Avro Canada C 102 Jetliner.

    Jim was in charge of the design team on the Jetliner and had previously worked with two of the great British designers, Sir Sydney Camm on derivatives of the Hawker Hurricane and with Roy Chadwick on the designs of the Avro Anson, the Lancaster, the York transport and the Tudor passenger aircraft.

     Floyd's Wright Bros. Medal was the first to be awarded to a non-American and was cast in gold.
