Books and Publications

  • David Hamilton, TIME FLIES - Reflections of a Fighter Pilot, Fonthill Media LLC, ISBN 978-1-78155-584-2, 2017;
    • Review by Georges Bridel (President of ALR, Sept. 2017): "David Hamilton, since long time, is one of our best friends, and since 2011 member of ALR, the Swiss Aerospace Project Development Group. He continuously supports ALR in the various fields of military aeronautics. For myself, I had the pleasure to work with David many years with Eurofighter GmbH and in EADS Military Aircraft in Munich, where we were employed: a great experience. Many of the stories in the book were told to me before. Having read much about the Royal Air Force history, the book reflects the great tradition of British armed forces."
    • Review by Chris Stone (Davids first Squadron Commander): "In full disclosure, I must admit that David Hamilton was a first tourist on my squadron. So, I can truly state from firsthand knowledge that this is a story of a fighter pilot with clearly defined leadership abilities and a dedication to getting the best for, and out of, his men. For those unfamiliar with fast-jet flying operations, or the daily life and activities of Royal Air Force fighter pilots during the Cold War, this well written book will be completely illuminating. David’s words flow easily as he takes us on his journey from basic flight training to the culminating challenges of gaining combat readiness in a complex supersonic fighter aircraft, and on through a thoroughly enriching air force career. Be sure to have plenty of time when you first start reading 'Time Flies', for you will be hard pressed to put the book down until finished."
