Reading for Motivation

Way back in olden times (when I was a teenager) I read the books written by Frank Kingston Smith. I found “Week-end Pilot” and “Flights of Fancy” at the local library and was immediately fascinated. Years later I also read “Weekend Wings”. They might not have been the start of my fascination with flying but, they certainly fed the fire.

Recently I have been thinking about  how I got interested in aviation and how I was going to get back into the air. I remembered those books by Mr. Smith and decided to try to find copies. They are long out of print but, luckily, I was able to locate used copies of all three. I am happy to say that, although a little dated, they still inspire me as much as they did back in my teens. I highly recommend these great books to every aviation enthusiast.
