Walter, I flew in the 60s with VFR. I was working on my IFR rating when I found out that I was pregnant with 2nd son.
Doctors then were boobs and didn't want pregnant women to do ANYTHING. My flying years are a chapter in my book, "Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Moon."
I'm sorry about your non-flying career. Fate can be cruel. I agree that flying is VERY expensive.
Neil can be very funny. BTW Neil is BIG--he is well over 6 feet but not fat. One of his books is, "Death by Black Hole."
Even my non-science hubby laughed out loud.
I want to tell you another thing. Our family is 3rd Gen. U.S. Marine Corps. My father-in-law fought on Iwo Jima and in Korea. My husband was in Vietnam while I was working on Apollo. Our son just retired after 20 years as a Marine Corps Aviator. He received an Air Medal from the President of the U.S. for an incredible air rescue. He spent the last 4 yrs of his career teaching at the U.S. Naval Academy. We all have served this country we love with honor.
I would like to ask you to read the reviews on my book:
Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Moon
Then could you ask your local library to carry my book? The ISBN is: 9781609110635.
Just talk to :the acquisitions dept.
I would be forever grateful!!
