"Alan Meyer's Weekend Pilots serves as a crucial guide to private aviation's intimidating world of insider references, technical jargon, and showmanship for both the uninitiated and aviation aficionado...This book [is] impressively instructive and accessible to nonpilots...[and] an enjoyable and engaging read."

"Meyer finds a world that tells us as much about aviation as it does about gender and masculinity in American culture in the years the nation began to confront these issues across society. He takes us through the story with telling examples, thoughtful interpretation and a good deal of often humorous, and sometimes poignant, anecdote. Weekend Pilots is an excellent scholarly accomplishment and a delightful read."

"Well organized, eminently readable, and accessible, this book tells a fascinating story. I highly recommend Weekend Pilots."
