Review of Cessna 152 A Pilots guide

4 out of 5 stars

I am very impressed with this book – extremely comprehensive with very clear explanations. Lots of diagrams and charts to break up the text.I am not particulary mechanically minded so especially appreciate the clear and simple description of the aircraft systems.

Note that I got the book for next to nothing on Ebay – always worth a look

Missed Lesson – Favourite Flying Quotes

Unfortunately due to low cloud 900ft and altitude for flying circuits at 1000ft, it wasn't possible to do my circuit training today. Although it would have been interesting! Thought I should do something to do with flying so have compiled a list of my favourite flying quotes …

Flying is the best possible thing for women.
Baroness Raymonde de Laroche of France, first licensed woman pilot, receiving her license, 8 March 1910

The worst day of flying still beats the best day of real work.
so very true

When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.
Leonardo da Vinci

Flying an aeroplane with only a single propeller to keep you in the air. Can you imagine that?
Captain Picard, from 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' episode 'Booby Trap
