Of course, as any experienced pilot knows, actually flying the plane is the easy part of getting a license, and Sylvia does a grand job of describing all the obstacles she runs into - not the least of which is intruding into an activity still predominantly male dominated.
For bonus, there's a thrilling sequence near the end where Sylvia's talent for writing and drawing the reader right into the action especially shines.
It's a quick read at about 50 conventional pages: long enough for us to feel like we really get to know Sylvia; not so long that she wears out her welcome.
Then there's no question, or, um, there is.
Because making a snap decision based on being insulted, and then actually following through and learning something you had no interest in until that very insulted moment, and maybe you're also a little nervous about your abilities - that's another thing entirely.
I grinned as I read this, living vicariously through this author as she struggles through her inner debate, watching to see what she's going to do.
I loved this - the candor, the humor, and the nerves. Hope to see more soon.
The author's personality shines through and you want to meet her. Well written.
I really liked the story, and it was funny at times. However do not miss the drama of an emergency in the sky.
I think that this book describes the Amelia Earhart of the present!
The ending was great and I read this book all at one time. I could not put it down!
Mother's should read this to their daughters. Woman can do anything!

This is advertised as a short story, and there are promises of more to come, but I would have enjoyed this even more if the story had continued.

I'm a women pilot too and know that what Sylvia wrote about learning to fly was the real deal. In the US we don't have to pay landing fees at general aviation airports. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Mary D.
The story line was ok, but it seemed to rattle on and on about women's right and it took forever to "go anywhere". Read morePublished on December 17, 2012 by amh277
This book was boring. The characters never developed much. I ended up skimming through it after I had read about 25% of the book, and it never got off the ground (pun intended!). Read morePublished on October 23, 2012 by Amazon Customer

Sylvia takes flying lessons in Spain. She shares her adventures and feelings about learning to fly and solo. I'm not as adventurous as Sylvia but I lived vicariously through her. Read morePublished on August 3, 2012 by Sheila Gallagher
