Great Aviation true to life stories,

This book is a great read for all Aviation buffs, from the armchair pilot to the very experienced pilot. Once you start reading the odds are you'll read the entire book without stopping.

This is a Fascinating story from Johns early days working with and learning to fly through his Military career and Civilian life in Aviation.
His love for aviation is apparent from his experience with more different models of fixed wing and helicopters than any other person I know.
One of my favorite stories he tells is about flying a F-51 while
assigned to Edwards AFB flight test group. Another interesting story
is John doing a roll in the AH-1G Cobra Helicopter during an air
show. I have seen the movie.
I met John while assigned to the same unit, UTT, in Saigon. I was a
pilot in a UH-1B slick helicopter group that ferried troops into "hot
areas" and the armed UTT helicopters provided close air support for
us. I remember one particular sortie, I was on final, delivering
ground troops to one of the areas and while I was flaring to land,
rockets from the UTT helicopters were zooming beneath my helicopter
to "soften" the hot area ahead. My personal opinion of some of the
involvement he had with the Viet Cong were a bit more exciting than
his cool and easy way of describing the events.
Well done John, it has been an experience knowing you.

Subject: Book Review—Fifty Years of Flying
Rarely does one have the opportunity to review a book written by an individual whom I consider to be the “finest Pilot I have ever known.” However, John Thomson is clearly deserving of that accolade. As pilot of some 54 years, I have personally observed and flown with many great Army Aviators . However, in my judgment, none were as unbelievably smooth and incredibly proficient as John Thomson. It is therefore no surprise that I found John’s book on “Fifty years of Flying,” to be an understated and inspirational testimonial of an amazing career by an equally amazing man.
When I had the honor of commanding the first unit to introduce the AH-1G Huey cobra helicopter into combat in Vietnam, I was afforded the opportunity to personally select the members of New Equipment Training Team (AH-1G NETT). Without a moment’s hesitation, I chose John Thomson to be our Standardization Instructor Pilot, even though the other members of this select team were also considered to be “the best of the best” when it came to flying proficiecy.
Not only was John one of the most skillful and courageous combat pilots I have observed, as a consummate professional in every respect, he established standards of performance worthy of emulation by all with whom he came in contact. Further, his remarkable “control touch” and keen grasp aircraft systems, enabled him to achieve performance results from newly developed aircraft that exceeded those of company test pilots.
John Thomson epitomizes the term “Army Aviator,” and his personal account of his amazing flying career will serve as an inspiration to all aviation mined readers who seek to become “all that they can be.”

"Fifty Years of Flying" was absolutely great and a pleasure to read. This book is a must for anyone who is even remotely interested in aviation and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good read. Thanks for writing it!

John Drake Thomson had his pilot’s license before he got his driver’s license. He ended up with over 15,000 hours of flying time, 10,000 of which was in helicopters. This book takes you along with him as he teaches his cat to skydive, picks up a couple of Purple Hearts and many other awards during two tours in Vietnam, teaches the Shaw of Iran’s soldiers to fly, gets invited to Russia to fly the largest helicopter in the world and many more exploits. This is a fascinating book by a fascinating man. If you have any interest in flying at all, you will want to read this book.
- John Seal a friend and helicopter pilot as well.
