Miles Aircraft -The Early Years - The Story of F G Miles and his Aeroplanes 1925-1939, by Peter Amos
The story of one of the most radical British designers and manufacturers up to World War Two. The distinctive Miles Hawk series of monoplanes was popular amongst private fliers both in the UK and overseas, while the derivative Magister trainer was a key part of the RAF expansion programme.
Peter Amos gives the history of Miles from his barnstorming days at Shoreham to the aircraft producing years at Woodley. He provides details of the various firms with which Miles was involved and full development histories of the types and projects designed by him, his wife and his brother George, plus a comprehensive history of each individual aircraft built.
