EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedPowder Puff Pilot debuts children’s book at AirVenture
 
Denver-based publisher Powder Puff Pilot this week announced the release of its newest book Claire Bear Explains… What Pilots Fly, just in time for visitors to EAA AirVenture 2010 to take it home to their favorite youngster.

The new title is third in a series of full-color picture books by Sue Hughes designed to make learning about aviation fun.

They feature Claire Bear, a pink-clad aerobatic performer and mentor for aspiring young pilots.

The Claire Bear series is the brainchild of Hughes, a pilot since 1996 and a current flight instructor and aviation technical writer. Her goal: introduce the thrills and excitement of aviation to a new generation.

In Claire Bear Explains… What Pilots Fly, a young girl asks Claire Bear what she flies.

The accomplished aviatrix takes the opportunity to teach the youngster the wide range of aircraft and missions pilots fly—from gliders and hot air balloons to jet fighters and spacecraft—ending with the query, “What will you fly?”

The first book in the series, Claire Bear Presents… The Pilot Alphabet, published in 2008, teaches the phonetic alphabet. Now in its third printing, it was named by USA Book News as a National 2009 Best Book finalist in the Children’s Picture Book category.

In addition to publishing, Powder Puff Pilot designs and sells pilot gear and accessories for women, such as a pink pilot logbook, pink aviation headsets, and pink seat cushions.

Hughes will attend EAA AirVenture 2010, signing copies of all books in her Claire Bear series at the Author’s Corner located in the EAA Wearhouse. To learn more visit the company’s website, www.PowderPuffPilot.com.
