Flight of the Tiger Moth by Mary Woodbury

Book Description

When death threatens a pilot at the nearby air training base, seventeen-year-old Jack must use a secretly-acquired skill to save a life and affirm his own identity to his over protective mother. Jack Waters sees his small prairie town turned upside down in World War II, when an air base to train English flyers is set up nearby. It's 1943, no one knows who will win the war, and Canadians are taking a major role in the fighting. This includes training British Royal Air Force pilots in many centres across Canada. Even though Jack can't enlist, he secretly learns how to fly. Good thing, because when a friend's plane comes down on the prairie, Jack has no choice but to make his first solo flight - to try and save a life. The Flight of the Tiger Moth is the thrilling story of one boy's journey to become a man and find his path in the world. It also gives young readers a glimpse of Canadian lives during World War II, and of one more Canadian contribution to winning the war.
