HOW TO FLY A PLANE

The training aid for many a pilot from one of the leading instructors of the First World War. There are 160 pages with many illustrations of leading aircraft of the period. Chock full of handy tips for the budding aviator. Nothing could ready you for the world of combat, where pilots’ lives were measured in hours rather than years but Captain Barber of the Royal Flying Corps could prepare you for your first solo flight in the primitive aircraft of the time. Taking you through the various types, he shows you how to fly a World War One biplane.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Horatio Barber was one of Britain’s first pilots, and was instrumental in setting up Shoreham Airport, Britain’s first municipal airport. Reputed to have a voice so loud he shouted instructions at aviators from the ground, he died in the mid-1950s. His book went through four editions in 1916 and 1917 and has become a classic of aviation literature.
