Living in the 1930s, with nary a nickel in his pocket an immigrant’s son learned to fly. This was Nick’s story written by him 50 years after that first solo. Come back to the time when crashes were common, navigation was “I follow roads”, scarf and goggles were standard pilot gear and barnstorming was the way to get folks out to the airport for a ride. Written by a pilot from the 1930s who tells his story of learning to fly in Clarence Chamberlin’s airplanes and becoming a barnstormer, who founded the Jersey City Flying Club, Clifton and Whippany airports. He tells his adventures in flying the Hisso Standard, Swallow two place with OX5 and Kinner engines, Waco, Great Lakes, along with the Consolidated Trainer, as well as the Curtiss Fledging, Eaglerock, and many other biplanes of the times.
“This true story written by a New Jersey biplane pilot, is filled with names, places, aircraft and adventures from the golden era of aviation! What a fun read.” James P. Adams, ATP, Gold Seal Flight Instructor, Retired FAA Operations Inspector, FAASTeam Program Manager
“This book gave me insight to the circuitous path budding pilots, who were just part of the general population, had to follow to learn to fly. I loved the misadventures, calamities and comradery depicted among the early aviators that Nick described.” Nova Hall, author of Spirit and Creator, The Mysterious Man Behind Lindbergh’s Flight to Paris.
“General aviation pilots from the 1920s and 30s are at times overlooked especially those from New Jersey. As the industry grew in New Jersey, few chronicled the struggle to provide flight schools, airports and flying clubs for would-be aviators seeking to fly those incredible scarf and goggles machines. This book describes the trials and tribulations, adventures and misadventures, and the insider stories of early aviators such as Clarence Chamberlin, Eddie Gorski, Chet Coons and George Stone. Documented with original photos, this book is an archival treasure of New Jersey flying in the golden age of aviation”. – Ralph Villecca, Executive Director, Aviation Hall of Fame & Museum Of New Jersey
Critique: A Barnstormer Aviator: My Personal Journey to Scarf and Goggles Flying in the 1930s lives up to its title as a riveting, firsthand testimony of the pioneer days of aviation. Here is a glimpse of life in the 1930s, an era when trying to find a flying instructor was challenging and to fly solo meant potentially risking one’s life to engine failure, crashes, or the hazards of flying at night without instruments. A Barnstormer Aviator is fascinating from cover to cover, and a “must-read” for anyone interested to learn more about the exhilaration and perils of the early aviation era. Highly recommended! – Midwest Book Review

|Wow! This is an amazing first-hand account of a time long past. To say the people who lived and enjoyed this passion were an adventerous bunch would be an understatement. The format used to write this important work makes for easy reading and an easy understanding of the sequence of events. While I am not an aviation buff, I can see how this hobby can reach into the hearts of the people who love the feeling of flying and the people who are as avid as they. It was interesting to read the lengths a person would go to in order to achieve the goal of flying and being able to achieve what seemed liked lofty flying goals. I sincerely hope the author has been able to share this publication with your family and your father’s friends. This would be an important addition to their history.
Thank you to the author for taking the time to put this amazing story to print.

A journey that would take a simple boy from Texas to the big city of New York to rub elbows with Dorothy Lamour and Cab Calloway, on to the historic field from which Howard Hughes and Amelia Earhart soared into record books, and finally across the ocean to “give his all” in World War II with Churchill’s celebrated Royal Air Force of Britain. A journey that lay hidden in a trunk for almost fifty years and a story unspoken by a family unable to ever stem the pain of their loss. And it began in a dusty box of letters that Early Jr. himself told of his exhilarating and tragic life’s journey.

This book was written to expose a threat to civilization that could happen today or tomorrow, rather than the decades forecast by environmentalists. The unmistakable similarities of current and pre-Great Flood civilizations as unearthed by archeologists, are astounding. Ancient civilizations are thought to possess a high level of technology that researchers speculate caused their downfall, and possibly the cataclysmic events that destroyed Atlantis. Frequency saturation of the precious envelope of air surrounding our planet may be affecting her stability. All our efforts to rectify global warming may be in vain should our new weapons and technology cause a major axis shift to Earth.
