For the love of aviation history, John R Seibold brings the autobiography of J. Parker Van Zandt to print. J. Parker Van Zandt, a pioneer in the field of aviation, was the father of Grand Canyon air tours and founder of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. While delivering a Ford Tri-Motor, Van Zandt flew over the seventh wonder of the world, the Grand Canyon. As a result of that flight his vision of air tours began in 1927 with the birth of Scenic Airways. The autobiography of J. Parker Van Zandt has not been published and with the printing of this book we dedicate it to the memory of this great aviation pioneer. Van Zandt was proficient in aviation navigation and assisted in the creation of numerous navigation devices while enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Service.

This book is a must read for anyone who enjoys the guts and glory of the golden age of flying when taking chances for the advancement of aviation and just for the love of flying was given no second thought.
