A Life in Flying. Stories From a Pilot (Paperback)


A rich fund of anecdotes drawn from the authora s time as an airline pilot and manager which spanned a forty year career, starting in the 1960s. Roughly tracing the authora s career, each story paints a different picture, be it be of a pilot, his faults and foibles, an experience the author had, a management problem and more. The backdrop is aviation but many of these stories could just as easily be transposed to a different setting. Most, but not all, have a strong flavour of humour and/or irony running through them. In todaya s world of political correctness and in a society otherwise constrained by litigious lawyers and an overbearing press many of these [mostly amusing] stories almost defy belief. Such has the world, and the world of aviation, moved on, few of the present crop of young pilots flying today would believe what went on behind closed doors. And neither would the rest of us!
