My favorite airport has always been KUOS (Franklin County, TENN) the "UOS" stands for Univ. of the South at Sewanee, TN. Back in 1987 - 1990 as a Naval Aviator Recruiter I remember flying in and talking to the "Master of Spins" Bill Kershner about spin training and his early years as a Naval Aviator. The airport is nested in the trees atop the mountains in South Eastern Tennessee.

Flew in Franklin Co back in the mid 1980's to look at an airplane that was for sale. Friend of mine took the training course from Bill Kershner. She was a local flight instructor and very good. Loved to fly with her. Learned a lot from her.
She also was my daughter's flight instructor.

Bill Kershner was a good guy. His Flight Manuals were very well written; clear, concise, and easy to understand.

As far as I'm concerned, they set the standard.

I agree, Pops, and considered recommending Kershner’s books in the thread about taking the FAA test, but they are out of date.

Yes, now out of date, but they were very good at the time.
