    This is a book that every beginning commercial pilot must read! It describes the pilot career of the author with all the ups-and-downs, and it quickly shows that there are plenty of them, in this story. After he has got his license, he works as a pilot instructor for a period in the small aviation. […]

    Review written by: Pedro Blas Gonzalez

    The Vietnam War initiated the expansion and diversification of United States air power. After World War II and the Korean War, the U.S. military saw the need to create “heavy attack” bombers capable of being launched from aircraft carriers – which were becoming larger at the time. A-3 Skywarrior: Units of the Vietnam War is […]

    If you love pictures and heavy vehicles you need to ‘read’ this book! Rob Dragt has a fascination for heavy mobile equipment. Earlier he wrote books on special transportation & salvage vehicles. In this book he puts the focus on this type of equipment used to transport ‘written-off-aircraft’ and there is also focus on heavy […]

    234 pg.

    Ever heard of this exhibition?! I had not! …. What you will first notice about this book is that it is relatively large. It is printed in A4 size and of excellent quality. When I opened it for the first time I noticed that it was written in a very detail oriented manner and that […]

  • Contrails

    Robert Anderson
    X X X X X
    336 pg.

    Contrails by Robert Anderson is the first piece of aviation fiction I have ever reviewed. It is an entertaining and funny novel which drew me in from the start. I found I couldn’t put down because I was so curious as to how the principal character, Sam Claymore, would end up. Sam is a pilot […]

    It’s as if the devil is playing with it, but even now when I ‘just’ pulled ‘an-nice-looking-book’ off the bookshelf somewhere, it again appears to be … another great book. Maybe you think I am having shares of this publisher, but that’s not the fact I can assure you! This book is about the development […]

    Robert Wohl

    323 pg.

    Never thought I would write 50 reviews about aviation books, but here it really is: my 50th review! And to think that, as a child, I hated books. I didn’t even read the bubbles in comic strips. I am humbly grateful to all those writers of beautiful books who gradually won me round! I carefully […]

    The best-selling GA aircraft in the world; the Cessna 172! That’s where this book is about. What strikes you first, is that it is a small book (about 17 x 12 cm). The book is 128 pages thick and a ‘must have’ for every Cessna pilot and owner. From start to finish the book is […]
