They Dare to Enjoy is a book featuring the joys and thrills the profession of fighter flying offers. The book expands the life of fighter pilots, as well as describes the different activities related to lying at an airbase. There is a vivid description of the cockpits and instruments used by pilots in World War II and state-of -the-art cockpits of today. The book describes how missions are conducted using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and how air defence of our airspace is carried out— how intruders are tackled and shot down if they display hostile intentions. It gives an insight into the on board modern weapon systems, including the precision guided munitions and other ground attack weapons. The thrills of flying in pitch dark night are vividly described.

I hope this book will achieve its aim and open the doors wider for youngsters to become fighter pilots and “Dare to Enjoy” a very challenging profession.
