Leighton Collins first soloed in 1929 in an open-cockpit biplane. He founded Air Facts magazine, which he edited and produced almost single-handedly for 35 years.
"A master aviator writes down all he knows about takeoffs and landings. The result is a goldmine. . . . Half a century of close observation and penetrating analysis has gone into this book. We are fortunate to have it. Read it slowly. There is a lot to get." —Wolfgang Langeweische, author, Stick and Rudder
