The Isle of Sheppey in north Kent was the birthplace of aviation in the UK and early pioneers, including the Wright Bros and Charles Rolls, gathered on its low, flat ground to undertake experimental flights. By 1909 the Short brothers has established the first British aircraft factory and from there events snowballed. By 1911 the first naval aviators began training at nearby Eastchurch, which site became the first Royal Naval Air Station. Its popular first course had over 200 volunteers for just four places. The station served with distinction in the war that soon followed, as it did again through the Second World War, until its closure in the late 1940s. Although the road of discovery that finally led to some of the world's first and finest aviators arriving in Sheppey in 1909 was both long and arduous, this book serves as a timely reminder of the island's great contribution to the story of flight in the UK, being the cradle where much of Britain's aviation history once began.

Introducing the life and times of a legend in international aviation — Lim Chin Beng — the man they called Mr SIA. Absorbing the life and work of Lim Chin Beng is like watching a fly past of airlines and aircraft old and new. In this book, his past comes to meet you in many forms — designs, shapes, figures, photographs, episodes, places, people and you discover the connections with business, society and international aviation today and into the future. Here's a man who was instrumental in taking the very basic components of a business — like a potter taking the clay — and creating what has become one of the world's leading brands, Singapore Airlines. But this airline "specialist", trained as an economist, had more jobs to do. His broad range of interests — arts and sports, property and tourism — led to him being called on to do his "national service" for Singapore. He was Ambassador to Japan for two terms and trade negotiator, chairman of the Singapore Tourism Board, Changi Airport International, Singapore Airshow, Singapore Press Holdings, Ascott Group, and ST Aerospace. Described as a quiet achiever and a visionary, this modest gentleman was not afraid to make bold decisions and take risks, even to the extent of setting up a budget airline, Valuair. Here was one man, who in his time, played many parts, on the world's stage and at home.

Named one of 100 Leadership & Success Books to Read in a Lifetime by Amazon Editors Confronted by omnipresent threats of job loss and change, even the brightest among us are anxious. In response, we're hunkering down, blocking ourselves from new challenges. This response hurts us and our organizations, but we fear making ourselves even more vulnerable by committing mistakes while learning something new. In Flying Without a Net, Thomas DeLong explains how to draw strength from vulnerability. First, understand the forces that escalate anxiety in high achievers and the unproductive behaviors you turn to for relief. Then adopt practices that give you the courage to "do the right things poorly" before "doing the right things well." Drawing on his extensive research and consulting work, DeLong lays out: - Roots of high achievers' anxiety: fear of being wrong and lack of a sense of purpose, and a craving for human connection - Destructive behaviors we adopt to relieve our anxiety: busyness, comparing ourselves to others, and blaming others for our frustrations - Behaviors we must adopt to gain strength from vulnerability: putting the past behind us and seeking honest feedback Packed with practical advice and inspiring stories, Flying Without a Net is an invaluable resource for all leaders seeking to thrive in this Age of Anxiety.

Character In Chief The Personality And Character Of Current And Past Presidents

Using analytic skills honed to a sharp edge with years of psychotherapy experience, John Berecz explores such contemporary issues as "Was Nixon a wife beater?" "Was Dubya smart enough to be president?" "Is Gore too uptight to lead the free world?" "Did the 2000 election boil down to a choice between personality and competence?" Skillfully, Berecz explores the relationship between character and personality, helping the reader understand how a man with the moral integrity of Jimmy Carter could bungle the presidency and a man like Clinton, with so little character, could manage it so successfully. Drawing on thee decades of teaching and therapy, Berecz burrows beneath the surface of personality and character to reveal the real person working in the Oval Office. With penetrating insight and concise writing, the author acquaints the reader with the real people behind the pageantry of the presidency. This book clearly disentangles the contradictions of Bill Clinton's presidency by examining his split personality. Berecz explains and clinically documents Clinton's dual personalities: a sociopathic personality (Slick Willy) and a codependent personality (Baptist Billy). Resulting from Clinton's two-world childhood, these personalities are only loosely connected an operate serially to control his behavior. Like many adult children of alcoholics (ACA), Clinton seeks-by-turn-to please or to manipulate. Baptist Billy told voters "I feel your pain," and he did, but Slick Willy said he "didn't inhale," and didn't have sex with "that woman." Character in Chief is must reading for anyone interested in politics in general and the presidency in particular. With fairness and compassion Berecz will lead you to a deeper understanding of our great democracy and the people who lead it.
