Author: Herb Tabak
The 1970's and 1980's were the boom days of general aviation when learning to fly was easy, cheap and somewhat free from stifling government regulation. Availability of the GI Bill and low fuel prices enabled many, including the author, to learn to fly and add ratings while enjoying the nostalgia provided by the use of the few remaining barnstorming era airfields and training from former World War II pilots.This book memorializes many logbook entries of the author and includes some of the adventures he shared with his friends, family and others while flying small planes and hot air balloons.
