In the published material, the author introduces the readers to the life stories of the Austro-Hungarian Air Force pilot of Slovak origin, Ľudovít Dait. He was born on 2 January 1894 in the municipality of Cajla (nowadays a part of Pezinok). After the outburst of the World War 1, he was presumably recruited for the Hungarian Home Guard. In 1916, he joined the air unit, Fliegerkompanie 9, which operated at the airport Podhajce at Ternopiľ in Halič. In 1917, he was transferred to Fliegerkompanie 1 in Novi Sad. He died on 30 August 1917 during a flight accident and was buried in Novi Sad. During his short life, he received several accolades – Karol’s Military Cross, II. Class Silver Medal for Bravery and I. Class Silver Medal for Bravery. The text is suitably accompanied by photographs of Ľudovít Dait, his pilot license, preserve in the Small Carpathian Museum in Pezinok, as well as the Hansa – Brandenburg biplane.
