White Water Landings coverThis is a memoir of Geoffrey Pett’s adventures as a station manager in Africa for Imperial Airways during the operation of the Flying Boat service to Durban. It covers the period from his application to become a Commercial Trainee in 1933 to his marriage and return from Cairo to England in 1944.  It’s a vision of bygone days, from the luxury of airtravel in the Empire Flying Boats, to an undeveloped country, run by tribal chiefs within the governance of a fading British Empire.  A Boy’s Own adventure with planes, boats, elephants, spies and an amazing romance!

Now available as a hardcover book, paperback and ebook.
