“I can’t think of a pilot or aviation enthusiast who wouldn’t enjoy Unusual Attitudes,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “Reading Martha’s book will make you laugh at times and may even make you misty-eyed at others.”

In Unusual Attitudes, Martha takes her readers along as she flies a variety of popular and not-so-popular aircraft.  From her tales as an FAA examiner to her experience operating Miss Martha’s Flying School to unforgettable flights with whom Martha calls her “forever friends” in aviation, she shares it all.

Interspersed with the stories is some real-life advice from Martha, valuable to those who interact with flight instructors, the FAA, and other airplane owners and pilots. Her opinions may anger you; these stories may make you laugh or cry, but each chapter of Unusual Attitudes is filled with the passion that Martha brings to her flying.
