The Ted Scott Flying Stories was a series of juvenile aviation adventures created by the Stratemeyer Syndicate using the pseudonym of Franklin W. Dixon (also used for The Hardy Boys) and published almost exclusively by Grosset & Dunlap. The novels were produced between 1927-1943.

One book from the Ted Scott series appears to be the first Stratemeyer Syndicate book to be reprinted in a foreign country and language, in the first half of the 1930s. Cover and interior art are different from the G & D editions.


“Ted Scott” was an aviation series which featured Ted Scott, a public aviation hero rather than merely an amateur aviator. In book #1, Ted Scott got his fame for being the first pilot to fly over the Atlantic Ocean to Paris.
