Dick Schreder Biography

"10,000 Feet And Climbing", the biography of Richard (Dick) Schreder, written by his daughter, Karen Schreder Barbera, is a fascinating read. Dick Schreder was one of the pioneers of soaring in the U.S. and this book catches the essence of his years of designing sailplanes (the HP series) and his service to the soaring community not only in flying but on the SSA Board of Directors. The author takes us from his childhood, through his years in the Navy, his designs for powered and glider aircraft and his adventures in cross-country flights and contests. For those of us who have known Dick it is an enjoyable reminder of his accomplishments. Those who haven't met Dick will find a fascinating and well-written history of a man and soaring. You can order your copy now from the SSA Merchandise Department for $14.95 plus $4.25 shipping and handling.
