Fly Girls: How Five Daring Women Defied All Odd...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Between the world wars, no sport was more popular, or more dangerous, than airplane racing. Thousands of fans flocked to multi-day events, and cities vied with one another to host them. The pilots themselves were hailed as dashing heroes who cheerfully stared death in the face. Well, the men were hailed. Female pilots were more often ridiculed than praised for what the press portrayed as silly efforts to horn in on a manly, and deadly, pursuit.Fly Girls recounts how a cadre of women banded together to break the original glass ceiling: the entrenched prejudice that conspired to keep them out of the sky.O'Brien weaves together the stories of five remarkable women: Florence Klingensmith, a high school dropout who worked for a dry cleaner in Fargo, North Dakota; Ruth Elder, an Alabama divorcee; Amelia Earhart, the most famous, but not necessarily the most skilled; Ruth Nichols, who chafed at the constraints of her blue blood family's expectations; and Louise Thaden, the mother of two young kids who got her start selling coal in Wichita. Together, they fought for the chance to race against the men - and in 1936 one of them would triumph in the toughest race of all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erin Bennett.

Captain Zulu's Quick Reference for Pilots
12,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Juliet and Zulu are both Master Flight Instructors. They will guide you through this book which is an essential reference summarizing the basic knowledge used by Private Pilots to fly under visual flight rules (VFR) worldwide. It is written not only for Private Pilots, Sport Pilots and flight students, but for everyone who is interested in learning about flying an airplane. It also serves as a convenient reference for licensed pilots who need to stay current. Juliet and Zulu have designed this Quick Reference to explain complicated concepts in a logical way which will make learning straightforward and as easy as possible for the reader who is encountering the material for the first time. Concepts which are thoroughly understood, rather than just memorized, are much easier to apply in practice and to retain. The light hearted, jargon free, approach is intended to make the knowledge less formidable and to make the presentation attractive to younger readers and to the non pilot. The material is condensed and organized so that a substantial amount of information is contained in just a few pages making it easy to find and review specific items. For more detail and much more extensive explanation, the reader is referred to the several excellent and very well written Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) publications covering similar topics. The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has excellent instructional material on its website.
