After retiring in 1983, John spent another five years as a freelance test pilot, during which he added twenty types to the sixty different aircraft he’d already flown, and also performed at many major airshows around the globe. Since then he’s encouraged youngsters to enter the world of aviation and this book also features his incredibly valuable thoughts about and explanations of a range of traditionally tricky subjects, from aerodynamics to the Private Pilot’s Licence syllabus.
