Obituary: Glenn H. Brink

Friday, 06 January 2012 00:00

Glenn H. Brink, 94, a pioneer of commercial air transportation and an avid sailor, died peacefully Christmas morning 2011, at his daughter’s home in Southbury, CT. Prior to moving to Southbury, he lived for more than 50 years in Manhasset, NY. He was a sweet and loving husband, father and friend; and a gentleman, always. Born in Buffalo, OK, April 8, 1917, to Hazel Blanche Brownrigg and Earl Barrett Brink, he lived a full and accomplished life. A 1939 graduate of the University of Michigan College of (Aeronautical) Engineering, where he was president of The Flying Club and treasurer of the National Intercollegiate Flying Club, he spent the next 38 years at American Airlines. He was director of aircraft development/flight engineering, chief test pilot and the youngest commercial airline captain in the country at the age of 25, earning the “Million Miler Award” at age 33. He retired in 1977 and continued work as an aviation consultant.

During the 1940s, under contract to General Electric, he flew its then experimental plane through a series of tests which developed the cabin pressurization system that was put in the B-29 Superfortress bombers and that are now used in all modern planes. In a related test conducted in a Douglas B-23, he simulated a drop of 8,000 feet in four seconds, or a pressure change of 22.72 miles per minute, at 25,000 feet over New York. In 1943, when conducting tests at La Guardia Field, NY, the weather conditions were too warm; he immediately flew the four-engine C-54 to the Arctic Circle, returning a week later with successful test results. In 1948, he earned American Airlines’ highest award, the “Award of Merit” for “astute application of engineering analysis in establishing promptly the cause of two Douglass DC-6 fires.” Consulting for Curtiss-Wright, he was instrumental in the development and design of the modern day flight simulator.
