Bill Thomas's Fly for Fun is still the classic textbook for understanding not
just aerobatics but the basic mechanics of flying. A great aerobatic instructor,
US Aerobatic Team member, and judge in the 1970s and '80s, Bill often said that
many pilots approach flight as if it were driving and get in serious trouble
when they find themselves in stalls, spins, or even flipped upside down. He
taught hundreds of students to become safe, competent pilots while he worked
with more experienced pilots to hone their skills for competition.
Intended to accompany instruction by an aerobatic experienced CFI, Fly for
Fun is written with Bill's remarkable understanding of aerobatic maneuvers along
with his great patience and humor.
