Demoted to co-pilot, to get the top jet on his licence, he joined Aer Lingus Irish international flying Boeing s before moving on to Cathay Pacific Airways in. Ronald Williams was lucky enough to be selected as a National Service trainee pilot in December and so was able to sample the thrills of flying the Seafire, a navalised version of the well-known and beloved Spitfire and them to be converted onto its jet-powered successors.
Navy pilots have always required certain basic skills and flying as a National Service pilot in the postwar Royal Navy was certainly challenging, with some quite alarming accident rates. I simply could not put this book down.
There are only brief mentions of his Conway training and his short spell with Royal Mail Lines but it is the rest of his life as a pilot that rivets attention. Thoroughly recommended. Products Authors Categories Series. Toggle navigation.
