about this item

Following his success as a Cold War Canberra pilot, Mike Brooke was dispatched to become a flying instructor at the Central Flying School in the 1970s. After this interesting career spell, he moved on to undertake the demanding training regime at the UK’s Empire Test Pilots’ School in order for him to become a fully qualified experimental test pilot. This book follows his personal journey, with its many trials and errors, during five years of experimental test flying, during which he flew a wide variety of aircraft used for a huge diversity of research and development tests. Then Mike returned to ETPS to teach pilots from all over the world to become test pilots. Following on from his previous books, he continues to use his personal experiences to reveal insights into trials of the times, successes, and failures, and will prove fascinating reading for any aviation enthusiast.
