About the Author

A young Canadian farm boy joins the Canadian Air Force during World War II and learns to fly from trainers to later in Britain exotic Supermarine Seafire - sister of the Spitfire.

After the war with a compulsion to continue flying he starts a flying school, marries a beautiful blond, and works for succession of aviation employers to advance his career. This involves running flight operations in Kenya and other African countries, operating in several countries in South America, United States, Europe, and the Canadian Arctic.

During his last 20 years of flying he operated a Douglas A-26 on forest wildfire operations in Western Canada.

Editorial Reviews 

Canadian Naval Aviation
Allan MacNutt, a former RCAF and RN Seafire pilot, who is a friend of Canadian naval aviation, was mentioned in the previous newsletter. I have now read the book and sent book reviews to both ‘Across the Flight Deck’ and the ‘SAM Newsletter’. It is a good read that I would recommend to any naval airman: MacNutt was both a pilot and a mechanic/engineer, so his experiences cover both aspects of aviation. 

Mia Thomas, Times Reporter 
... Filled with enough aviation terminology and information to satisfy any airplane buff. Other strengths lies in MacNutt's story telling.

Aviation Magazine 
Al MacNutt's recollections of life in the cockpit attests to his fascination, bordering on obsession with aviation.

Doug MacLeod, Aviation Historian 
Your book is a wonderful compilation to be added to Aviation History.
