Magic In The Air
by Marc E Paulsen
Yes, there really was such a time! During that period, when an “airworthy” used airplane could be purchased for the price of a used car, the author bought a Piper Cub (“J-3” model) and then learned to fly. He proceeded to own ten different airplanes and have quite a number of lively aerial experiences. He has penned a collection of stories drawn from his aerial adventures (and misadventures) describing the exhilaration of flying free with the birds in one’s very own airplane...plus the perils of sometimes pushing (a bit too far) the “risk envelope” regarding the plane’s and the pilot’s limits. The age-old adage, “Good judgment comes from experience.....and experience comes from bad judgment” applies in spades to some of these stories!
