Do you like reading books from the glory days of aviation, including “How to Fly” books, and then enjoying some so much that you keep them and add them to your collection?  Well, for many of us, the classic/famous “Slick & Rudder” by Wolfgang Langewiesche would definitely be one (first published in 1944 and renewed in 1972).  But here is another in the same mould which I came across after visiting an aviation museum recently.  It is “Teach Yourself to Fly” by Nigel Tangye (published in 1938).  It was one of the first in the famous “Teach Yourself” series, and was read by virtually every RAF pilot before and during WW2.  I thoroughly recommend it.  Cheers.

I posted a video about this book a while back, featuring Orbx and a bunch of OZx strips. The author's son and nephew both left comments on the video!
