When a student at the flight school runs away with the little Luscombe 8f for a joyride, it is up to the small training plane to show courage, determination, and quick thinking to save the day. In Scamper and the Airplane Thief, our small seaplane will introduce the reader to flight’s dos and don’ts through the pilot’s actions. Learn the basics of flight through reading.
