Book Launch: Jim Hazelton – Born to Fly

Thu 3 June at 5:30 pm

What motivates a pilot to sit in the cockpit of a light aircraft for days, overloaded with fuel, alone over a vast ocean? This is the remarkable story of Jim Hazelton pioneer Australia aviator.

The late Jim Hazelton was the first Australian to fly the Pacific solos in a single-engine aircraft in 1964, Jim crossed the Pacific over 200 times, revelling in the hazardous business of ferrying light aircraft.

Join the Hazelton family to celebrate the launch of Jim Hazelton Born to Fly by Mark Nelson at Orange City Library. The event is supported by Collins Booksellers, Orange and books will be available for sale at the event.
