Another Kindle Ebook on the Way!
Just a short post today. I've just written another ebook for the Kindle, which will be out shortly. Of course I'll let you know when it's actually published, but this is just an advance notification.
The articles making up this latest book are very varied. They start with a trip to the Scottish Highlands with my friend Tricia, who features in several of the other stories too. Then comes a trip round Ireland, followed by a flight in Wales and the Borders to take part in (and win) an international flying competition, the 'Dawn to Dusk'. Again, I flew with Tricia for both of these adventures.
The fourth article is about a group flight to Paris by helicopter, arranged by my flying school fairly soon after I started rotary flying. The fifth is again about a trip to France, but this time alone and in a fixed-wing aircraft, so something of a challenge for me – although Tricia did join me for the last few days. The last two stories are somewhat different, and involve flying in California and Russia to gain experience and build hours before becoming a helicopter instructor. The articles are of different lengths and varying formats (some are in diary form) but hopefully that only adds to their richness and variety. The article about flying in Russia was nominated for an Aerospace Journalist of the Year Award in 2004.
All of these stories should be of especial interest to any private or commercial pilot of course. But they are also fascinating for anyone who enjoys travel and seeing faraway locations, by whatever means. Travelling by small private aircraft is a unique experience, and enables you to see new places in a totally different way from using any other means of travel. Therefore I expect this book to attract a very wide audience, and maybe it will persuade readers to go out and fulfil their dreams, as I did with my flying.
