About the Book

The book is neither a tale of instruction nor a recommendation regarding flying. It can only be described as an amazing journey taken by an ordinary women. As she had an obvious fear of heights, the book reveals how she was tricked by her flying-loving husband into learning how to fly airplanes! Never in her wildest dreams could she imagine sitting in the left seat of a small airplane, experiencing extreme terror as the plane leaves the ground for the first time. Share the cockpit with her on a solo flight when she encountered powerful winds gusting near forty-five knots that exceeded anything she had encountered, with her instructor aboard. Today, in 2018, we can celebrate with her as she is as comfortable behind the wheel of an automobile as she is in the cockpit of an airplane.

About the Author

Norma Jean Mason kept a record while she was learning how to fly in the 1970's. Her diary, apparently forgotten and gathering dust somewhere, recently surfaced. Her children reminded her she had accomplished something special when she was a young wife and mother (earning a pilot's license) and encouraged her to bring it to life as they thought it had historic as well as nostalgic value.
