  • A great gift for boys – and girls! – from nine to ninety. Packed full of totally vital stuff like how to build your own bottle rocket or hovercraft!

  • This is a fabulous book. I defy anyone with even the slightest interest in aviation not to utterly love every page. Sumptuously illustrated, this tells the story of flight with unashamed enthusiasm and erve. Read this and be swept up into the skies

  • I could bang on at length about this book. It's a roll call of legends and heroes. It's the work of someone genuinely obsessed with his subject yet gifted with the ability to make his obsession inclusive rather than exclusive. From end to end it's stuffed with the kind of anecdotes that can swiftly be passed of as one's own. But I'll treasure The Big Book of Flight just because it's joyful and joyous. Read it and you'll surely detect the hand of an expert - but more than anything else it reveals the breathless excitement of a young boy. Some vitally important part of Rowland White has never grown up, never forgotten why flying machines make his heart beat faster. It's a delight to see
