I'd say it's already passed. Golden Age would have been the twilight of the big piston airliners and the debut of the jet airliners-up to about 1970 with the introduction of the 747.

good answers guys but i was talking more about aircraft design, do you all believe the aircrafts of the 21st century wont be as exciting or beautiful as the ones in the mid 20th century?
|Quoting 57AZ (Reply 13):
Aircraft as we know them are concepts living on borrowed time. The true advances will lie in suborbital flights where the defining line between aircraft and spacecraft will be crossed. So for aircraft design, I will say that the Golden Age is well past. We have pushed aircraft technology to its limit.
