'Only the Maker's Name' is a book that tells the story of a boy who became infatuated with aeroplanes when, in 1934, he was taken up for a pleasure flight by the world famous Miss Pauline Gower. He was just three years old at the time.
The book covers his escapades and experiences as a child living alone with his mother in wartime Britain, how he ran away from home at the age of fourteen and his lengthy struggle to succeed in aviation. An almost fatal air crash put him in hospital for two years. Eventually he recovered and returned to flying. During his forty years as a flying instructor and commercial pilot he experienced several narrow escapes. He also flew as a stunt pilot, and flew one hundred and twenty different types of aeroplane. Finally after a hectic and sometimes amusing career, he retired as Managing Director and Chief Pilot of one of the 'Air Atlantique' group of companies.

Only The Makers Name is the poignant and reflective memoir of acclaimed Flying Instructor Ray Blyth.
Spanning the years of his childhood growing up in a small terraced house on the outskirts of King?s Lynn in the county of Norfolk surviving the Kings Lynn Blitz as well as many childhood adventures, he writes vividly of his early life underscored by his undying ambition to fly.
Inspired by an early Fun Flight on the beach at Hunstanton with his father, Family tragedy is soon to strike leaving him alone to set forth on the fulfillment of his dreams.
Following many years of hard effort he becomes a flying instructor clocking up thousands of hours of flying time, but not without sacrifices of many kinds.
A serious air accident leads to many months in hospital , and as he begins the long and agonising road to recovery uncertain he will ever be able to fly again he is faced with a recuperation process that demands every bit of his resourcefulness as he is tested to his emotional and physical limit time and again.
An amusing sometimes hilarious biography for enthusiasts of flying whatever your background this is also the story of one mans brave fight against all the odds while retaining dignity and compassion.
?There I was old boy, upside down with nothing on the clock bar the maker?s name.?
