The author was too old to become an airline pilot when he decided
to learn to fly and earn his living in airplanes, but airline
deregulation opened doors for those who, because of age, imperfect
vision, or lack of college degree had been considered unqualified
to fly airliners. He kept a diary of his flying life from first
lesson through retirement in case his grandchildren might someday
wonder what Grandpa's job was like in the days before computers and
automated flight management systems intruded between pilots and
airplanes. His flying career spanned 33 years and three marriages.
"I got in on the last of the best years for airlines, their
personnel, and passengers," he writes. "I'm glad I did, but I
wouldn't want to do it again."
