About the Book

Anyone who has piloted an airplane can relate to some of my experiences. If not, you should still enjoy some of the humorous stories. For example; One day, the pilot of a single engine Piper Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold short of the active runway while a McDonald Douglas MD-80 landed. The MD-80 landed, rolled out, turned around and taxied back past the Cherokee. Then I heard some quick-witted comedian in the MD-80 crew get on the radio and said, What a cute little plane ! Did you make it all by yourself ? Our hero, the Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back with, "I made it out of MD-80 parts. Another landing like that, and I'll have enough parts for another one".

This book gives you a look into the real world of flying, for a livelihood and some of the funny and sad things that happen in the world of aviation.
