This book captures the joy of flying with a style and charm which appeals to all generations. Whether you are a Senior Captain with 20,000 hours flying time or a pupil at the start of training, it you love flying you will be enchanted by this book. Frank Tredrey's diary account tells of his instructor's course at CFS Wittering in 1935 towards the end of the golden age of the biplane in the RAF. His wonderfully descriptive accounts of flying have rarely been equalled and skilfully weave his progress at mastering the instructor's art in the cockpits of 504s, Tutors and Bulldogs with the trials and humours of Service life on the ground. His infectious enthusiasm, love of flying and of the countryside reviews of this new edition, 60 years after the book first appeared, unanimously confirm it as a great British aviation classic of timeless appeal. This new edition includes historical, biographical and technical appendices together with 16 black-and-white plates and 4 colour GA plans.
