The Norse-American aviator Oliver Andre Rosto (1881-1972) was the first person of Norwegian descent to design, construct and fly a monoplane. The first flight of this monoplane (later christened “Duluth No 1″) was on February 26, 1913 from the ice of Lake Superior at Duluth, Minnesota, USA. After this flight Oliver Andre Rosto was mainly active in the world of aviation and worked as a quality inspector for the Curtiss Aeroplane & Engine Factory in the USA, for Ericson Aircraft Ltd. in Baltimore and from 1928 to 1952 for the Civil Aeronautic Authority. At the age of 71 he started to work for Transocean Air Lines and its subsidiary the Aircraft Engineering & Maintenance Company – AEMCO. The website tries to give a short introduction of his life and work.
For many this name is unknown in aviation circles, but many may know him as an able flight engineer. He had a fantastic life including adventures as polar explorer with the Byrd Expedition and the Ellsworth Arctic Flight. The last part of his life he worked for the Norwegian airline Det Norske Luftfartselskap, Fred. Olsen & Bergenske A/S and was responsible for the introduction and maintenance of the Sikorsky S-43, LN-DAG “Valkyrien”. Unfortunately, Chris and his wife Molly Mullens were killed in an aircraft accident in 1937. The site is under construction.
