Résumé A glider pilot bold was he A maiden unsuspecting she He landed one day near her home Demanding tea and telephone
Her dainty heart had missed a beat Steep turns at five and twenty feet The field was very very small The trees were very very tall ...
Walter Kahn's love affair with gliding started in 1945 and his book tells many amusing stories about the people he has met over the past fifty-odd years. Tales of those men and women in their flying machines, the songs they love to sing and events leading to the glider movement as it is in this country today are faithfully recorded, supplemented by a list of gliding books published in the United Kingdom.
A very active glider and power pilot, he competed in national and international gliding contests, broke numerous gliding records and taught very many men and women to glide.
For a number of years he was a Committee member of the Surrey Gliding Club and the Lasham Gliding Society. He was also a Council member of the British Gliding Association, chairing two committees, a committee member of the Royal Aero Club and represented the BGA on the CCPR Council. He holds the International Diamond C gliding certificate.
He was awarded life membership of the RAF Gliding and Soaring Association and the Royal Aero Club Silver Medal.
