1955 till 1977 ─ Elvis in Aviation


“As an Aeronautical Engineer, and a huge Elvis Presley fan, I have always wanted to write a book on Planes and the King. Since my first visit to Graceland, back in 2001, I have been extremely intrigued by Elvis' history with his aircraft and his link to aeronautics in general. Observing the imposing flying machines exhibited at Graceland as testimonies to the greatness of the Artist of the Century, led me to think at the time that there was more behind his story. And there is! It was like this that, for several years now, every little detail, every short paragraph in a book, every video, every photograph, every little note or information related to Elvis and his planes, was always marked and kept in my personal archive. After several years of accumulating material, I have decided to entrust myself to this company, putting into words what I was able to compile of my two great passions: Elvis Presley and Aeronautics.”


This humble research work is intended for any fan of the King who wants to learn more about this hidden and enigmatic aeronautical facet of Elvis; as well as, for any aviation lover who is intrigued by the singer's bond with the exciting world of aeronautics.

Earlier last year, a childhood dream came true with a Spanish-language book entitled "Los Aviones Y El Rey" by Carlos Varrenti. This fantastic reference book is soon available in English. The original had 198 pages and has grown BIG to a good 400.


Hundreds of pages of information about Elvis and his planes. The book, characterized by many technical details of the planes that Elvis has flown supported by many fascinating stories and anecdotes from Elvis' (fellow) musicians, his inner circle, friends and family. Every single detail you can think of, accompanied with countless photos from 1956 to 1977, you’ll find in this publication.


Many photos have never appeared in print before, a real treat for the collectors. A light-hearted and well-thought over book that will not collect dust in your bookcase ‘cause there is always something interesting to read ─ again.


This topic has never been covered before and is unique in its appearance. Thousands of books have been published about Elvis Presley, the phenomenon, but no one has touched upon the subject of airplanes . . . . until now. A gem that belongs on every self-respecting Presley fan's bookshelf.
