Vuelo Domingo Rosillo-Negro
In May 1913, Domingo Rosillo piloted an aeroplane from Key West in Florida to the sun-drenched island of Cuba. Rosillo was the first person to accomplish this feat. The Cuban citizen continued to play a prominent role in the country’s aviation history until his passing in 1957. The Cuervo y Sobrinos Vuelo Domingo Rosillo celebrates the achievements of this remarkable individual. However, while the company has looked at the past, its gaze is primarily focused on the future. Indeed, the name ‘Vuelo’, the Spanish word for flight, implies ‘a flight to the future’, making reference to the contemporary styling of this sporty model.
