Editorial Reviews


The author's style is crisp and entertaining, although with enough technical info to help get the "feel of flying." As a fellow aviation aficionado, I can emphathize and understand some of the trials and tribulations... O.C. Dobrostanski, Studio on Dogwood, Texada Island, British Columbia

From the Author

When I decided to depart from my normal writing genre (travelogue memoirs), I decided to test the waters with a book about flying. Aviation is something I know well, particularly from the flight instructor's point of view. I wanted to write a book for non-pilots as well as experienced aviators, while keeping the focus on the British Columbia coast. My approach has been to describe the details of flight, from takeoff to landing, adding cross-country experiences that should keep my normal audience (Canadians) entertained. But flying is flying, whether it be in a Piper Arrow in Canada or a Cessna 172 in the United States. In  this book, I've attempted to bring the reader into the cockpit. In fact, I've handed him the flight controls, and told him: 'Follow me through.' I hope you decide to join me in taking the controls of my Piper Arrow and climbing into Canadian skies.

More About the Author

Author websites:

Born and raised in upstate New York, sunshine and the University of Southern California drew me west. My Air Force service was followed by 20 years as a C-130 aircraft maintenance officer with the California Air National Guard. From 1980-2005 I was Chairman of the Department of Aeronautics at Mt. San Antonio College and led the college's Flying Team to championships as Top Community College in the US seven times. Meanwhile, I continued to accrue flying time as a FAA certified flight instructor, logging 7000 hours. I now reside in a floating cabin on Powell Lake in British Columbia and a city-folk condo in Bellingham, WA.

I am an outdoors kind of guy. You will find me most often at my floating cabin on Powell Lake boating, hiking, fishing, reading or writing. I use my quad to explore the back country. I enjoy touring inlets and bays along the BC coast in my 30-foot Bayliner, as well as flying to remote destinations in my Piper Arrow.

My book series entitled 'Coastal British Columbia Stories' highlights the people, places, and off-the-grid adventures in a region where mountains drop into the sea and lifestyles focus on self-reliance and a different sense of purpose. As for writing, non-fiction is my main contribution to the writing world, but science fiction is my passion.
