Captain Two Voices: The Memoirs of a Private Pilot (Paperback)
Captain Two Voices, is an interesting, funny, and sometimes scary account of 30 years plus, flying light aircraft of various types and sizes in the skies above the UK, Europe and the Far East. From the start, this memoir gives a fascinating insight in to the world of light aircraft and aviation in general, and the freedom to see the world below from the perspective of a bird. The author's passion for flying, which started as a trial flying lesson gift, is almost palpable when reading the exploits, which include close encounters with French jet fighters, flying in the same airspace as Concorde in its last year of flight, culminating in the author taking control of an icon, and flying the Supermarine Spitfire in the skies above West Sussex. Captain Two Voices may entice you to try this hobby for yourself, or if you are a pilot, you may recognise some of the situations and experiences both humorous and sometimes not so. As the author says, "it is better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air, than in the air wishing you were on the ground".
