Flying airplanes for sport is expensive. Many recreational pilots are businessmen or executives with sufficient income that allows them to fly. But this recreational community also includes a smaller group-the blue-collar workers.
With little disposable income, they struggle to find money to support their flying passion. Eventually, many succumb to the financial pressures of home and family, giving up flying altogether. But there are some who find a way to continue enjoying their love for flight.
Blue-Collar Wings: Remembering Thirty Years of Private Flying is the autobiography of middle-class worker Robert J. Keith, who shares his story of flying light aircraft for recreation and refusing to abandon it in the face of increasing costs. For three decades, Robert and his wife Nancy enjoyed many adventures flying airplanes and hot air balloons throughout New England and slightly beyond and proved that dreams do come true.
