Each month I will feature an aviation book that I would recommend you add to your collection.
This month I’m featuring Fire and Air A Life on the Edge by Patty Wagstaff. This book is one of my favorites, and not just because it’s about aerobatics. The reason I love this book is that you can really tell that Patty revealed her soul in the text. It provides a great deal of insight into the women, the world-class competitor, and airshow performer that is Patty Wagstaff.
Even if you have seen so many airshows that you could care less about another wiz-bang monoplane pulling 12Gs, you owe it to yourself to read this book. You’ll get to see inside the personality that has amazed crowds for decades and inspired countless new pilots, including many women!
