5.0 out of 5 stars A Pilot's Perspective, 30 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Pilot's Perspective: A Former Airline Captain's Reflections on a Lifetime of Flying 1950-2012 (Paperback)
Having worked as a pilot with Cedric I am somewhat biased perhaps.....and maybe not. I was fascinated to learn of his back ground and wallowed in happy memories of operating the 1-11 with him. I found this to be an excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a read!, 12 May 2013
This review is from: A Pilot's Perspective: A Former Airline Captain's Reflections on a Lifetime of Flying 1950-2012 (Paperback)
A suggested read by a friend and was totally enthralled. As someone who did not work with the author, Cedric, but is interested in other people's lives, I found this book had a lot to give. For anyone who is interested in being a pilot, Cedric's story is one of commitment and endeavour. He set his sight on a goal and achieved in what he believed, a good lesson for any youngster wanting to achieve their goals. His story, maybe a bit technical at times, was an interesting one if any reader wants to get into the 'perspective' of a pilot. A really good and good to read the life of another merseysider.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Pilot's Perspective: A Former Airline Captain's Reflections on a Lifetime of Flying 1950-2012 (Paperback)
I had the pleasure of working for Cambrian Airways in the mid 1960's and knew the author well. This book takes we back to those happy times when aviation was still an adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pilot's perspective, 22 Dec 2013
This review is from: A Pilot's Perspective: A Former Airline Captain's Reflections on a Lifetime of Flying 1950-2012 (Paperback)
Very entertaining read, describing the thrills of flying, as well as some of the day to day pitfalls of airline flying. I particularly enjoyed the 30 knot cross-wind landing under the nose of a petty training Captain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Read, 4 Sep 2013
This review is from: A Pilot's Perspective: A Former Airline Captain's Reflections on a Lifetime of Flying 1950-2012 (Paperback)
I found this book absolutely engrossing. It was wonderful to read about the author's early days and the struggle to achieve an ambitious goal of taking to the skies - and earning a living from it!! The book progresses through the author's many experiences and it is a fascinating journey. As well as a very interesting life story, the book documents the way that aviation has changed over the years. Although this book would appeal, in particular, to an aircraft enthusiast, it is also very entertaining reading. Highly recommended.
