Just imagine air travel of the future with personal jetpacks, airborne buses, and floating freightliners. The book explores today's most advanced technology for air transportation and suggests how this technology might change in the future. The "Contents" page shows the scope of the information. The "Introduction" explains the challenges to be considered for future air travel including safe transport, fuel use, pollution, and the environment. The text, vivid photographs, and other graphics illustrate the elements of the various modes of air transportation. These explanations include: Flying High, Future Airliners, Light Planes, Whirlybirds, Quick Jets, Ground Effect, Lighter Than Air, Personal Flight, Aero Power, Military Aircraft, Air Safety, and Future Airports. "Look Further!" introduces possible antigravity drives and space planes that would provide air transportation. An "Index" provides easy navigation through the material. By Air is part of the "Future Transport Series" which also includes: On Land, In Space, and On Water. These books provide a history of travel, and give young readers a look into the future of technology for all types of transportation. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
