The life story of Brice Goldsborough
By Robert Dye
For years, long lost information about the man that was literally instrumental in Charles Lindbergh's famous transatlantic flight sat forgotten in Bob Dye's home.
Dye ran across the old newspaper and magazine clippings, telegrams and letters about Brice Goldsborough one day when raffling through some old boxes. As he read them he began to realize how much Goldsborough contributed to early Aviation.
Brice Goldsborough made a big impression in a short time. In 1919 he started Pioneer Instrument Company, a firm that became one of the world's largest aviation instrument producers. It was Goldsborough who designed, built and installed the instrument panel for Lindbergh's famous plane, the Spirit of St. Louis. He also became associated with other famous names in aviation such as Glenn Curtiss, Clyde Cessna, Walter Beech and Igor Sikorsky.
