    Review written by: Max Heldring

    The title of this splendid e-book, written by Jennifer Coutts Clay, doesn’t quite cover the load, because the content contains much more than just information about the decoration of the modern jetliners. This book describes the development of the airplane interior since the introduction of the first generation commercial jetliners. Not only the upholstery of […]

    “It’s possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill”- Wilbur Wright. That statement sets the tone for this little book. CRM (Crew Resource Management) is then outlined from multiple point of views. This is a book about cockpit CRM. Next to the ‘theory’ luckily also a lot of examples are used in […]

When William Prickon’s health at the end of 2012 diminished, he decided, after endless pressure from his family, to put onto paper his carrier as jet pilot at USAF and later as private […]

    No, no, stop! Don’t scroll down to the next review…read this one for a moment! In the past I didn’t know so well what I had to do with delta-flying. I wondered sometimes if it was something for me, but I think I lacked courage to really hang beneath a piece of fabric and sail […]

    How often does it occur that a historical researcher dives deep into the history of a beautiful nostalgic aviation company? Not so very often I believe, DHC-2 but this is in any way a  very successful attempt of the Canadian Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail. The combination of researcher, writer en specifically this aviation company (that unfortunately doesn’t […]

    A humoristic original guy the writer of this book is; Eric Auxier. He nowadays flies big ones, but there was also a short period that in Alaska he flew smaller ones. This book is drenched with everything that Alaska IS: fantastic landscapes, beautiful birds, desolate landsapes, mountains, a lot of bad weather and little opportunity […]

    I picked up this little jewel in the children’s section of a book store, on a shelf labeled “8 years upwards”. Well, I would love to be 8 all over again, because this is a beautiful book. Over the course of 50 pages or so, it deals with the basic principles of flying, outlines the […]

    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 […]

    My interest in British aviation dates from a good 25 years ago when, as a boy I was regularly to be found, practically glued to the perimeter fence of RAF Wildenrath in Germany, jotting down airplane numbers. I’ve fished out the notebook I used at the time. Thumbing through it I see among the entries […]
