Book Review – Howard Pixton, Test Pilot & Pioneer Aviator, The Biography of the First British Schneider Trophy Winner



A fantastic tale, told with love, affection and pride by a daughter. One of two books about test pilots that have no rival. This is a book that no one, who expresses interest in aviation, can afford to be without. The other book is ‘Wings on My Sleeve”, the story of that other outstanding British test pilot Capt ‘Winkle’ Brown RN. Between these two books, there is not only a great aviation story from each, but an encapsulation of British Aviation and the development of the role of test pilot. Pixton’s story is incredibly exciting and a real treat.
