Hmm, Jaray. A man who 'cut his aerodynamic teeth' on airship design.

But no, not Jaray.

OK, time for another clue (more a clarification of what may have been already surmised):

The writer of the quote was involved with airships.

Time for another two clues.

While involved with 1930s airships, he (the author of the quote) was in fact English.

And:

The airship he was involved with had one of my favourite novelists as a mathematical calculator on the project.
