Edwin Albert Jr. was born in Huntington, Indiana back in 1904 to Edwin Albert Sr. and Katherine. In 1910, the family moved to Binghamton, New York.
In 1920, at 16 he took his first flying lesson. In 1927 he flew the first Cessna airplane ever delivered earning a living by barnstorming, charter flying and giving lessons.
He was one of the first people to use a plane for advertising by using lights on the wings to spell out a message. He also designed submersibles for underwater archeology and research. He died in 1981 in Binghamton, New York at 77.
What you may not know about Edwin Albert Link is that he is best known for inventing the flight simulator in 1929. He obtained more than 27 patents for aeronautic, navigation and oceanographic equipment. Not bad for a boy who never went to college, don’t you think? Until tomorrow keep a smile on your face and pass it on.
