The A to Z of flying jargon is the subject of Flying Can Be Fun, a humorous look at the world of flight. Award-winning cartoonist Dick Locher has teamed up with award-winning humorist Michael Kilian to create the funniest illustrated dictionary of flight lingo available anywhere. A is for aerial, "that part of the aircraft most frequently broken off during walk-around pre-flight inspection to see if anything is broken off." C is for coordinates, "flying clothing worn by fashionable female pilots." G is for ground speed, "what airspeed becomes upon landing." I is for icing, "what frequently happens to pilots who think that flying through winter thunderstorms is a piece of cake." S is for spin, "what makes the world go 'round when you're looking at it directly through a windscreen." And W is for wilco, "Roger's last name," of course.
