William Langewiesche

Before William Langewiesche could read, he was learning about flying by listening to some of America's best aviation writers talk about it. Those writers included his father Wolfgang, who wrote "Stick and Rudder"; Leighton Collins, who founded and edited "Air Facts"; and Robert Buck, who wrote "The Art of Flying" and "Weather Flying." William learned to read, learned to fly, learned to write, wrote "Inside The Sky: A Meditation on Flight," and now writes for The Atlantic Monthly. In this month's Profile, AVweb's Joe Godfrey talks with William about his father, his recent cover story on the crash of EgyptAir 990, and the kind of flying he likes best storm flying.
