In Love with Flying

Flying with and without an engine. In this engaging memoir, Kenneth Ford does more than provide tales from his fifty years of piloting light airplanes and gliders. He explains the kinds of lift that keep gliders aloft, the idiosyncrasies of "tail-draggers," the art of landing in a crosswind, and more. Adding to his own story, he crafts loving profiles of other aviators whom he met and admired.
