In line with the recently launched Aviation Skills Manifesto that states Aviation Skills Partnership will provide learning resources for those involved in aviation, the new library service below offers leading informative books covering the aviation industry.
This book is his friendly and personal guide to getting into the aviation industry. It offers a first person account of the process, with useful and detailed information about the different processes that one must go through to become a pilot. It is a welcome relief from the formal documentation that you would otherwise have to trawl through to find out about the various tests and qualifications that a wannabe pilot must undertake.
SPITFIRE EVOLUTION has over 70 illustrations from award-winning artist Jon Freeman and a foreword by aeronautical engineer and eye-witness to the first flight, David Faddy. David’s father, Alf was the design team section leader at Supermarine for what was then called the Type 300 so his insight is almost unique.
Without the courage and tenacity of some leading political and military figures and the hard work of lesser-known mortals, there would have been no Spitfire, no Battle of Britain and no ultimate victory in 1945.
