In this memoir, Kenneth Ford provides tales from his own fifty years of flying light airplanes and gliders, and he profiles various aviators he has met along the way, people who impressed him with their passion for flying and who brought a special style to their love affair with flying. This book is for anyone of any age who is thinking about becoming a pilot, or is already one, or who just appreciates the romance of the air. It's more than a collection of anecdotes. Ford is a teacher, and here you will learn, in non-technical language, about the kinds of lift that keep gliders aloft, the idiosyncrasies of tail-dragger airplanes, the art of landing in a crosswind, how pilots get from A to B, and more.
