Capt Jepp and the Little Black Book is a fascinating look at the beginnings of aviation in America; the colorful daredevils who risked (and sometimes lost) everything to entertain crowds, deliver the mail, and carry passengers commercially. It is the compelling story of the amazing life of Elrey B. Jeppesen--Capt Jepp--daredevil barnstormer and wing walker of the 1920s, intrepid airmail and airline pilot of the 1930s, creator of an aerial navigation system in use today worldwide, and founder of a business that has grown into an international, multi-billion-dollar enterprise without equal. In the 1930s, Capt Jepp started keeping a journal that eventually saved his life and the lives of countless fellow pilots: His little black book contained detailed information about every route he flew and every airport at which he landed. This simple, ten-cent notebook would one day become the system by which ninety percent of the world's airlines and pilots navigate. Capt Jepp and the Little Black Book is the rags-to-riches story of the son of Danish immigrants who did more to make flying safer than anyone else on the planet.About the Author:
