The year was 1911 and there was going to be an aviation race. There was a $50,000 prize to the first aviator who could fly across America in 30 days or less. Flying Lessons is the story of the aviator Cal Rodgers' flight of the Vin Fiz as seen through the eyes of an 11 year-old boy from Middletown, New York...the first stop on Cal Rodgers' historic flight.
Young Giuseppe "Joe" DeTura is captivated by flight and can't believe that he was going to witness history in his hometown. The story allows the reader to experience the flight of the Vin Fiz and see what it was like for young Joe DeTura and how his friendship developed with Cal Rodgers...the man who promised to give him flying lessons.
Along the way, Joe learns more about himself, his talent for writing...and his father.
