Speaking of Flying 438 pagesThis wonderful 438 page hardbound book was written by 44 pilots who are speakers with The Aviation Speakers Bureau.These funny, dramatic, and inspiring stories are some of aviation's finest tales. You would expect nothing less from aviation's celebrities, experts and specialists.

You will go along as history is being made and hear the pilot's perspective on some of these aviation firsts. You will find ACES and true heroes within these pages.Included are notable aviation participants: Scott Crossfield, Julie Clark, Bill Cox, Robin Olds, Al Haynes, Dave Gwinn, Cliff Robertson, Barry Schiff, Bob Gilliland, Dick Rutan, Burt Rutan, Bill Lishman, John Nance, Bob Morgan, Shanda Lear, Steve Ritchie and Rod Machado, to name a few.
