These two related novellas, Stephen Morris and Pilotage, were Nevil Shute's first works of fiction and drew on his own youthful experiences. Both concern young men obsessed with the early world of aviation.

Pilotage continues the story, focusing on Stephen's ambitious navigator Peter Dennison, as he tests a daring idea for a new cross-Atlantic airmail service.
