Fifty Years of Flying Fun covers, in a roughly chronological order, over fifty continuous years of flying. This ranges from joining the RAF in 1962, through his intriguing first operational tour on Hunters in Aden, the early days of the Jaguar in Germany and, finally in the RAF, an almost outrageous two years flying the Jaguar and Hunter with the Sultan of OmanÕs Air Force. His subsequent civil flying has been exclusively in the General Aviation and flying display fields as a flying instructor and well known display pilot, including being involved in many varied and interesting display-related episodes. With in excess of 7,000 flying hours on 59 different types Ð and only one aircraft (Spencer FlackÕs Mustang) with a working autopilot Ð Rod gives a clear, and largely humorous, insight into the operation of a cross section of piston and jet engine vintage aircraft and his undoubted fifty years of fun since the first solo on 19 March 1963. Fifty Years of Flying Fun is not just a book for the aviation enthusiast, but for anyone wanting to learn about any aspect of flying history through the memoir of a man who lived through it all.

Fifty Years Fly By is the concluding book in the Adventure Trilogy by Randy; former Green Beret, 7th Army Parachute Team Member, Alaskan Bush Pilot, and Surgical Physician Assistant. He began flying at 16 on the farm and learned mountain aviation in Utah. While in Alaska Lippincott took a four-year hiatus from orthopedic surgery and piloted 5,000 grueling hours in the Bush, where the company cut off was 50 below zero! These are the riveting actual accounts collected over a half century of how a boy from Nebraska found his way to the wilds of Alaska. It is a story of daring and excitement that began on a grass field in the Midwest where the basics of the stick and rudder were ingrained in a young man. They are stories of hard work, perseverance, experimentation, and stretching the boundaries, which in the end add up to the journey of a lifetime. This volume describes the family flying stories that started it all; however, it is also the timeless story of a father and son who celebrated aviation together. Randy tells about the fearless trials he suffered while earning a position for the most severe on-the-job training in North America in the harsh and extreme winter environment north of the Arctic Circle during the winter of 1989. The stress of being an Alaskan Bush Pilot is recounted in vivid detail along with the daily struggles of an Air Taxi Pilot. I was an aviator of the enduring purple twilightan allure that holds me in its grip to this day.
