A Chronology of Aviation by Jim Winchester is a well written, nicely illustrated volume taking us from the very beginning of man’s leaving the ground to early 2013. I personally like the way Winchester laid out the book with the history being presented in two ways: a nicely written narrative format, along with the typical ‘timeline’ listings down the right side of the pages.

Jim Winchester is a prolific author of aviation titles and has also appeared in many periodicals as well. His knowledge shines through the pages of A Chronology of Aviation and Winchester’s writing style will appeal to everyone from the neophyte aviation fan to the serious historian.

The book’s large format allows for detailed photographs interspersed with the text and although not a thick volume, the content nicely covers all the major flying machines from balloons to the F-35. ( )
