The book starts with the author's early flying experiences as a co-pilot with British Airways and moves on to his life as a Captain and after nearly 30 years of airline flying this was followed by 10 years of flying a 1934 vintage aeroplane.
Then Denis on his 60th birthday, decided to build a composite 4-seater single engine aeroplane. This project took 5 years and the book continues with an account of their flight across the North Atlantic in 2003 to commemorate the successful powered flight by the Wright Brothers in 1903 - one hundred years before.

About the Author

The Author held a pilot's license for 60 years - more than half the time that aviation has existed.
During his 60 years he flew airliners with speeds varying from 130 mph to over 600 mph - just below the sound barrier,
From piston-engined aeroplanes to pure jets, the memories illustrate just how far we have come in half a century.
It was great fun!

Dedication - to the Fellowship of the Air
