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.
