The Adventures of an Ordinary Pilot
by H. C. Skip Smith
There is, in the unassuming manner that H. C. Skip Smith presents his lifelong love affair with flying, plenty of reason for enthusiasts to revel in this effort
For one thing, flight seems to casually cast away much of its perceived esoteric and intimidating nature, and on the other hand, much of the over-the-top notion of romance associated with it is left to the imagination of the reader.
What is left is seamlessly sensing the bare essence and issues of flying, tempering the over enthusiasm of imagination, without ignoring the truly euphoric moments of exhilaration from having to measure up to the confining whims of Mother Nature.
