This book is designed to turn your flying licence into one of the most rewarding investments you have ever made. It is for the pilot whose logbook is beginning to show longer and longer gaps between flights, or where the From and To columns are gradually being filled up with ditto marks. It is for the owner who finds that dandelions and long grass have grown tall enough to hide the main wheels each time he or she returns to the aircraft.
It is for the pilot whose left shoe soles wear out before the right ones and whose rudder leans permanently to the left from constantly flying boring left-hand circuits and bumps.
It is for the pilot who is beginning to feel a bit like a tennis ball, always flying to and fro along the same unadventurous route between the same two familiar airfields.
Clearer Horizons offers a better use of your precious pilots licence. It shows how your flying can be both rewarding and motivating and it tackles the challenges and opportunities that await any pilot who wants to progress beyond their basic skills.

James started pilot training with the University Air Squadron, flying Miles Magisters and Tiger Moths (first solo 1947) and later Chipmunks. He joined the Royal Air Force, completed wings training on Harvards and went on to fly Gloster Meteor jet fighters.
