Cloud Cuckookand is a volume of delightful reminiscences. This book highlights Harald Penrose's love of light aviation by conjuring up graphic images of a golden age of private flying in the UK. The book comprises a series of charming and often funny stories involving a variety of types.

If you have never read this little classic about the joys of flying, you have a treat in store. Even if you have read it before, I think that you will enjoy rereading it, as I did. Either way, not to spend £10 on discovering just what it is that makes you spend £1,000 and more a year on flying would be a seriously false economy. - PILOT

Another long-awaited reprint, this tome highlights the Author's love of light aviation by conjuring up graphic images of a golden age of private flying in the UK. The book comprises a series of charming and often funny stories involving a variety of types. FLYPAST

Re-issue of one of the late test-pilot's collections of reminiscences, this one dating from 1981. Not really about aeroplanes - but all about the pleasures of flying them and of experiencing the environment in which they fly. Next time some boring little bean-counter from Yield Management asks you why you go flying, make him read this, twice. FLIGHT INTERNATIONAL . . . a delightful volume of reminiscences by the famous Westland test pilot. . . AEROPLANE
