This is the fifth in the Fight For Series where truth is scarier than fiction. Flight For Justice coming soon, where it’s not about truth and justice, but what you can prove in court.
Despite management paying for a bipolar diagnosis to medically disqualify Darby from ever flying again, she returns to the sky. Now she fights for justice. Darby filed an AIR21 complaint, under the Whistleblower protection act, and aligned forces with attorney Robert Allen. What they learn in discovery uncovers more deception at the highest levels than anyone could ever imagine. The plot thickens when the second MAX crashes, ASAP reports are at an all-time high, and the FAA, airline executives, and manufacturers are making deals in blood. With what Darby and Robert learn, there is no way Global Air Lines will take this to trial—or is there? This is the sixth in the "Flight For" series where truth is scarier than fiction.
Aviation safety is at stake—especially if the pilot job is eliminated.

Truth is scarier than fiction.

Forced to pull the post she is called into the chief pilot’s office and her career threatened.
