Synopsis

Dan Ford learned to fly at the age when most men are well into retirement. In this short book, he tells how it was to have a flight instructor one-third his age, to make a Sentimental Journey to the Pennsylvania airport where the Piper Cub first saw the light of day, to practice spins and aerobatic turns in a Great Lakes biplane, to fly low and slow in New Jersey, to make a leisurely tour around Lake Winnipesaukee and into his past, and to have a close encounter with the National Defense Emergency of September 11, 2001. A delightful read for anyone who ever dreamed of becoming a pilot. About 11,000 words (44 print pages).

This is a charming book by a man who learned to fly in a J-3 Piper Cub long after most people have retired from work and outdoor sports. He prowled around the state of New Hampshire, learned bush flying in New Jersey and aerobatics in Arizona, and had a close encounter with fighter-interceptors on 9/11. Great reading for pilots and wannabe pilots.
