Flying by Bradshaw
By Arthur Bradshaw

Memoirs of a Pioneer Pilot 1933-1975

Flying De Havilland Puss Moths with his own Southland Airways over New Zealand's rugged terrain in the 1930s, serving with the RNZAF and RAF during World War Two, captaining Douglas DC-6s on the trans-Atlantic service for SABENA, flying his family home to New Zealand from the United Kingdom in a single engine Percival Proctor, working as a charter pilot for the Nelson Aero Club and flying as a part-time airline pilot in the 1970s.

All this and much more was the fascinating and varied life of pioneer New Zealand pilot, Arthur Bradshaw. His flying career, usually routine, but sometimes exciting and often demanding, was never dull or uninteresting. This is Brad's own story of a long and notable career in aviation - a career which spanned more than four decades and took places all around the world.
