Turning your book into a reality

A Flying Life by Mereo Books

by John Delafield

8 times National Gliding Champion, John Delafield retired from his career in the Royal Air Force (RAF) with the rank of Air Commodore, but he was far from ready to hang up his flying helmet and joined the RAF Volunteer Reserve (Training) organisation to satisfy his desire to keep on flying. He had a passion for gliding that started well before he joined the RAF and later became well known in gliding circles by winning many competitions. His successes even earned him two entries in the Guinness Book of Records. This memoir is an entertaining and richly illustrated account of his flying career, from boyhood aeromodelling to designing and manufacturing modifications to enhance the performance of various gliders and, later in life, business enterprises.
