The first publication to tell the story of the revival of Private flying in Ireland in the 1950s. lt draws on unique material and on a superb photographic collection detailing the period, the majority of which have not been published before. A must-have for Aviation enthusiasts. A nostalgic history of an era now gone.

Private aviation was re-born in Ireland at Weston aerodrome in the 1950’s with the formation of the Aero Club of Ireland. David Montgomery was it’s enthusiastic and energetic Honorary Secretary and this account is told by his son Bob, through his father’s unique collection of photographs and the notes he wrote and which appeared regularly in the now long gone Evening Mail newspaper.

This book tells the story not only of Private aviation at that time, but also of a personal tragedy.

Bob Montgomery is widely known as Ireland’s foremost motoring historian. He also has an interest and involvement in aviation since childhood. His previous aviation title, Early Aviation in Ireland, told for the first time the story of the pioneering years of aviation in Ireland. The author of twelve books and numerous smaller publications, he is Curator of the Royal Irish Automobile Club Archive and is well known for his columns in The Irish Times, Flying in Ireland and Irish Vintage Scene magazine.
