KIRKUS REVIEW

Call it fiction or non-fiction -- as you will- but the substance of it is factual, a simple honest little job for the air-minded youngster who wants to learn to fly but isn't ready for technical jargon. He takes Andy, a 16-year old High School student, who comes to Danbury airport with the money he has saved from working at odd jobs. He is eager to begin his flying lessons- and the author follows those lessons from the first half hour of dual instruction, to the final glorious moment of solo flight. There is no plot to speak of -- the use of a specific central figure is a device.
