JRD’s overriding passion was aviation. His hero was the French piloting ace Louis Blériot, the first man to cross the English Channel by air. Blériot lived near the Tata’s French country home and once allowed a co-pilot to give the 15-year-old JRD a ride. From that moment on, JRD was determined to fly. Having moved to India, in 1929 he achieved his goal. He became the first person in the country to be issued with a pilot’s license. A year later, he competed for the Aga Khan Trophy, which was being offered to the first Indian to fly solo from India to England or vice versa. JRD was flying from Karachi to London and landed en route at Aboukir Bay in Egypt. There he discovered another competitor, flying in the opposite direction, stranded by the lack of a spark plug. JRD willingly gave him his spare one and was ultimately defeated by a couple of hours.
