About the Author

Taught to fly in the same manner as the pioneers by a gyroplane legend, Shirley Jennings is the first British woman to qualify as a gyroplane pilot since 1934. She remains the only female pilot to have ever flown a single-seat gyroplane in Britain. In 1997, following the loss of her mentor, she wrote the first British gyroplane training aid of the homebuilt era, and has since taught many neophytes the delicate practicalities of handling a free-spinning rotor blade. She hates telephones and struggles with small talk, yet will happily chat about autorotation until the cows come home, and thinks nothing of hanging in midair from a single bolt.
