JEPPESEN a Biography of Captain Jeppesen By Richard Jeppesen

This is a behind the scenes, up close and personal story of my Dad, Elrey Borge Jeppesen, who quit high school and barnstormed his way to fame. Not many of the early Air Mail pilots lived, their wrecks are still scattered all over America. Their fellow pilots learned from the mistakes. From Jenny’s to Jets and on into space, the era of aviation my Dad flew in.

There were no Universities flight then. There were no aircraft construction standards. No regulations, no rules, and no airports either. Nobody knew how much turbulence an airplane could withstand and stay together. Nobody knew whether a plane could do a loop or a spin without the wings coming off. It was trial and error and to error was to die. These pioneers, risked their lives so that those that followed could learn from their mistakes. It was a deadly business.

This is a story of a man that created the Jeppesen Airway Manual. He was the one that first designed enroute procedures, let down procedures, approach procedures, missed approach procedures. This is the man that gave his fellow pilots a survival manual.
