Pilot and author Sue Hughes has released the fourth in a series of children’s books aimed at making aviation fun and accessible for young children. Claire Bear Flies to Oshkosh continues the adventures of Claire Bear, an aerobatic performer and mentor for young pilots.
Illustrated by Linda Terentiak, Claire Bear Flies to Oshkosh describes Claire Bear’s flight to the biggest aviation show in the United States. And yes, Claire Bear really does fly to the show, landing on the green dot as instructed.
Hughes, a CFI and aviation technical writer, also is the founder of Powder Puff Pilot, an online retailer of pilot accessories and gear for women. She published the first Claire Bear book, Claire Bear Presents … The Pilot Alphabet, in 2008. The other installments are Claire Bear’s First Solo and Claire Bear Explains … What Pilots Fly. All four titles can be purchased from Powder Puff Pilot for $9.95 each.
