The book takes us through the rigorous steps required of all top pilots as Nick attempted to achieve his goal of a command on his favourite aeroplane, the Boing 747. The book also relates the many exciting stories which saw Nick placed in all sorts of situations requiring a wide range of skills to handle both inside and outside the cockpit. Still Improving: Becoming the World’s Most Experienced 747 Captain and The Self-Improver: A Pilot’s Journey, the first edition of Nick Eades’ autobiographical account of his career in aviation, have been written in a way that will appeal to the general readers who might not know much about aviation. Nick Eades is originally from the South coast of England where he grew up close to Shoreham Airport in Sussex in a family with a strong aviation background. He now lives in East Grinstead with his wife Liz, who he met while flying. They have two grown sons, James and Robert. Nick plans to continue writing and is planning his third book, Overtaken by a Butterfly: The Stories Behind Running the World, about his experiences going running whilst travelling around the world during his career as a pilot.
