The remarkable story of JRD Tata who opened up the skies for his country - India. It is also the story of how from a small, single-seater, cloth-wood-and-wire airplane, a great airline, Air-India was created and developed. Whilst there have been numerous articles and biographical sketches published on JRD's distinguished career as an industrialist, little has been recorded about his career as an airman and pilot. Relying mainly on JRD's flight log books, letters and personal interviews spread over many years, the book skilfully knits together a fascinating account of his flying days. In addition to the wealth of information and background history on aviation, the book includes vintage photographs which are of great historical interest and value. Scarce.
