What is Flyingbooks

Flying Books gives access to a collection of books related to aviation and they are all written in a simple and very readable style. The books are non-fiction and range from when the author was a young pilot flying in the military, who then became a war veteran and later flew advanced air force fighter/bombers. The books also reflect a move to aviation human factors teaching including aviation medicine, and to a beginner-pilot's manual how to get started and safely fly aerobatics. Other books cover restoring and flying privately-owned military jets and other old ex-military flying machines including a rare flying boat. What makes this series of differing flying books so unique is the author's simple yet very knowledgeable writing style via which he is keen to pass on his thoughts and experiences about flying.
