The First Jet Pilot

UK publisher of aviation books PEN AND SWORD BOOKS LTD, recognizing the worldwide interest shown in Lutz Warsitz' biography of his father entitled "Flugkapitän Erich Warsitz" which was published in 2006 to mark the 100th anniversary of the famous pilot's birth, has had the volume translated by Geoffrey Brooks.

Author Lutz Warsitz has recalled the many conversations with his father, in which the latter recounted in the original aviator's jargon the exciting story of the Heinkel He 176 and He 178 development. Little is known of this pioneer period because of the strict secrecy which shrouded the whole project - it is a fascinating story that tells of the birth of the jet age and flight as we know it today. The book includes many unseen photographs and diagrams.
