Royal Cooper's career in the aviation industry spans fifty years and over sixty different types of aircraft. His love affair with planes began in 1933, when he spotted General Italo Balbo's Flying Boats on their way from Chicago to Italy.

The author's many experiences as an RAF fighter pilot, airline pilot, bush pilot and chief pilot form the basis of Tales From a Pilot's Logbook.

After World War II, Royal Cooper settled in Gander, Newfoundland, where he became Chief Pilot with EPA and served on the Town Council for thirteen years (three terms as mayor) and was active in setting up the North Atlantic Aviation Museum

About the Author
Royal Cooper was born at Summerville, Bonivista Bay, formerly known as Indian Arm. After his mother died, he moved to Milton, Newfoundland and lived with Mr. And Mrs. Arch Adams. He attended school at George's Brook and at the age of fourteen went to work in the family's sawmill.

Mr Cooper joined the Newfoundland Overseas Forestry Unit in June of 1940, and after upgrading his education joined the Royal Air Force at Edinburgh, March 1941. He was trained as a fighter pilot and served with the 125 (Newfoundland) Squadron RAF, until his honourable discharge in April 1947.

After his military service, Mr. Cooper flew with the Maritime Central Airways and Eastern Provincial Airways for twenty-two years. He retired from EPA in 1972 and subsequently worked with several small airlines on a part time basis until final retirement in 1984.

Active in the civic affairs, he was elected to the first town council of Gander, on which he served thirteen years including three terms as mayor. He was also active in setting up the North Atlantic Aviation Museum in Gander as vice president of the Board of Directors. For his contributions to the aviation industry and to the Town of Gander, COOPER BLVD. was named in his honour.

He is married to the former Ella Adams and has one son Glen, an airways inspector with Transport Canada.

In total, Royal Cooper has had over forty years in the aviation industry and flown more than sixty different types of aircraft.

His many experiences as an RAF fighter pilot, airline pilot, bush pilot, helicopter pilot and chief pilot form the basis of this book.
