Teach Yourself To Fly


This title was not only one of the very first ‘Teach Yourself’ books to be published but the first to actually change the world. It was used on the eve of the Second World War to prepare pilot recruits and conscripts before they were called for service, and as such it was read religiously by thousands of young men, some as young as 17, and directly impacted on the British war effort. This new printing of the book captures all of the feelings of that extraordinary time – it’s nostalgic, understated, inspiring and very British indeed, warning young pilots, amongst other things, not to feel ‘too discouraged’ in the event of a crash landing.
