Just for the Love of Flying
by Betty Rowell Beatty

This book is about an incredibly modest and accomplished South African aviator. In 1954 at the age of 32 she and a companion traveled from England through the length of Africa in an Auster Aiglet airplane landing in 54 places during the six-week flight. No radio, no ELT, no GPS. Just maps. She couldn’t carry a firearm over Moroccan airspace and couldn’t be without one over the Belgian Congo. Ms. Rowell’s experiences are reminiscent of the adventures of Beryl Markham.The book describes a journey that was successful against improbable odds. In the description of the flight and her other aviation experiences, the reader enjoys an insight into a woman who was always graceful when doors were shut, and who simply outperformed everyone in sight to achieve her objectives. Donald Engen, Director, National Air and Space Museum says of the book, "Will touch the heart of any reader. It will captivate those who enjoy adventure and will absolutely capture those who fly. First rate!"
