KIRKUS REVIEW

A lawyer-flyer-author (Flights of Fancy) tells the story of how he learned to fly with instruments. Bad weather had grounded him too often, and when he realized that his Coma plane was equipped for blind flying, he determined to master the task of learning to use the maze of dials and instruments. Terminology will probably be easier for the teen age reader than the average adult, and the book- along with breezy accounts of trips and flying, has a wealth of information. One could with the author had avoided the use of flippant vernacular language.
