Capt. David C.

The book delves into the history of airmanship, and Koch illuminates the differences between what he calls “Personal Flying 1.0” (what personal flyers are doing now) and “Personal Flying 2.0” (the way he argues personal flyers should approach flying).

All proceeds from the book are being donated to the Center For Airmanship Excellence to fund its Airmanship Outreach Program.
