              Flying Lucky 13 details the life and accomplishments of aviation pioneer Hugh Armstrong Robinson ( 1881-1963). Beginning with his early motorcycle and automobile exploits, the text follows Robinson's career from ballooning and dirigible flights to gliders and powered airplanes. F...lying with his Lucky 13 talisman, Robinson had many first-flight feats and gave over nine hundred flying exhibitions. Known as a daredevil and a showman, he was also a problem-solver. He invented the tailhook--a device that lets airplanes land safely on the deck of a ship--a concept so successful it is still used today. As a mechanic, inventor, engineer, stunt pilot, test pilot, consultant, and writer, Robinson devoted the majority of his life to aviation and helped to make the dream of human flight a reality. Flying Lucky 13 is the third book in the Goldminds Time Traveler Series highlighting remarkable individuals whose lives provide inspirational stories for young readers. The books also feature a Did You Know? section that provides additional details and milestones about the individual, a Vocabulary list where the more difficult words in the text are defined, and supplemental reference materials for further study.
