The remarkable autobiography of a pioneering female aviator who left a privileged life to serve in World War II. Her father was a millionaire race-car driver who became chairman of Bentley Motors, and her grandfather cofounded the De Beers mining company. But by the late 1930s, debutante Diana Barnato had enough of her affluent, chaperoned existence and sought excitement in flying—soloing at Brooklands after only six hours’ training. Joining the Air Transport Auxiliary in 1941 to help ferry aircraft to squadrons and bases throughout the country, she flew scores of different aircraft—fighters, bombers, and trainers—in all kinds of conditions, and without a radio. By 1945, Barnato had lost many friends, a fiancé, and a husband—but she continued to fly. In 1962 she was awarded the Jean Lennox Bird Trophy for notable achievement in aviation, but her greatest moment was yet to come, when in 1963 she flew a Lightning through the sound barrier, becoming “the fastest woman in the world.” Spreading My Wings is her remarkable memoir, brimming with history and adventure.

This is a book composed of poems about the experiences of my life. Instead of my emotions overwhelming me and destroying me, I found that through poetry I was able to release them onto paper. Those emotions can now be set free, allowing me to have my feelings seen through poetry, instead of my emotions floating in the air among the clouds, leaving me to bear internal suffering. This book of poems is how I have been able to free myself from the burden of my emotions. My only hope is that someone may be able to connect to some of my poetry and feel a little freer to express their own experiences through poetry as well.

Have that urge to want to fly? Want to attain your Private Pilot's Licence? This book might well help!At 17 years old, I was able to gain my Private Pilots Licence and subsequently achieve my childhood dream of becoming a pilot. Ever since I was two years old I have had a huge passion for transport, in general. At an early age, this, was mostly buses and trains. I would go to Ipswich train station, with my grandad, for the day, and be content for hours, scribbling down the numbers of each train. But as I got older I discovered the world of flight. I was hooked!This book came into being because of my huge love of aviation. There wasn't too much written by people my age, so I thought that I could write a book to try and inspire people to follow their dreams, as well as to provide advice from my experiences. The book starts off with my reasoning for why I love the world of flight. The second half then follows my journey from an aspiring aviator to a qualified pilot.I hope that you enjoy the book!
