The growing fraternity of people who have found release in flying as a hobby has an advocate here in lawyer Frank Smith. After a friend took him for a flight in a small private plane, he undertook mastery of piloting. Here he goes into step-by-step personal experience, the skills and technique. He includes a section on types of private planes, with complete details and prices. He answers the arguments against flying, discusses safety and causes of failure. Contagiously enthusiastic.
