Through the overcast: the art of instrument flying

Jordanoff, Assen

New York: Funk & Wagnalls Company, 1938. First edition. 8vo, pp. xii, 356; photograph frontispiece, several illustrations and diagrams throughout; original blue cloth stamped in silver on the front cover and spine; very good with a slightly skewed spine and a faint dampstain on the front free endpaper; lacks the dust jacket. Illustrated by Frank L. Carlson and Fred L. Meagher. Inscribed by Jordanoff to Ed Sommer: "To my best old 'pal' 'Ed' Sommer - the smartest pilot in our neighborhood who graduated in the first ever days of flying - and who eventually proved that flying is a simple thing - since only little brains is required - he still can land a plane. Happy landing, Ed. Jordanoff." The frontispiece is signed "Jerry" in ink. Jordanoff was an early aviator in the United States, served as a pilot in the Balkan Wars before emigrating to the U.S., and wrote several books on how to fly (Assen Jordanoff Papers 1897 - 1967, National Air and Space Museum).

Book is tight, square, and unmarked but for former owner name and flight class in WWII. Book Condition: Very Good; slight wear to tips, head, and tail from shelving; indentation mark on rear board; age toning to pages. DJ; Good; NOT Price Clipped; wear to tips, head, tail, and flap folds; stain on rear panel; rubbing to panels. Blue boards and spine with bright black lettering on spine and front board and black airplane on front board; light blue tinted top textblock. 356 pp. This is the only complete and practical treatise on what is sometimes incorrectly called "blind flying". The man who attempts to fly "on instruments" through adverse weather must be absolute master not only of the instruments but also of all the flight problems they were created to solve. The author has made a special effort to simplify a pilot's problems with a mass analysis of air conditions. The use of radio signals is treated more fully than ever before. A clean very presentable copy in a Brodart mylar jacket.
