Air travel is an almost essential part of everyday life. A significant proportion of travelers are curious about what is actually happening on the flight deck. This book, based on forty years of personal experiences, takes the reader into the cockpit. Written in a humorous style, it relates incidents, accidents and some romantic attachments. The narrative includes the transport of a complete circus, a period spent flying for an African mining company, a brush with Nigerian authorities and a glimpse of the beginnings of the Package Holiday business.
Hello and welcome to my Amazon page. Please try to stay awake for as long as you can but if overcome by weariness, please try not to snore.
Until quite recently, I was heavily involved in aviation both Military and Civilian both as pilot and as an engineer.
My first book, Skytrucker, relates a number of incidents and a few personal experiences whilst engaged in the defiance of gravity and is offered to the reader in a somewhat light-hearted manner although a few of those experiences had a rather profound effect on my subsequent life.
A second work has been in progress for some time and is intended to show how airlines and tour operators view their clients. I have received dire warnings about the probable consequences to my person, should this work ever be on sale. The working title for this book is "How to Survive the Package Holiday" The information contained therein will answer questions such as "What do they mean - A short delay?" and "What on earth is in this sandwich?"
