Editorial Reviews

Review

"With his signature brand of riveting prose, Captain Auxier brings aviation to life in vivid, spellbinding color. The next Tom Clancy."
--Tawni Waters, author, Beauty of the Broken; Siren Song; Top Travel Writers of 2010

"When we come across an aviator with a gift for storytelling, those adventures jump  off the page. Eric Auxier is such an author, and There I Wuz! is the book."
--Karlene Petitt, Airline Pilot-Author (Flight For Safety and Flight For Control)-CNN Correspondent

"Like watching a slide show of the life of a pilot. You will seriously enjoy this fast-paced read."

--PaxView Jeff (paxview.wordpress.com)

"Great stories from the pointy end of the plane. Extremely entertaining, enlightening, and just plain funny."

--Stall Recovery (flymaine.blogspot.com)
"Takes our minds on a wild ride of fun, laughter, and hair-raising flying tales. A thriller in every sense of the term!"
--JD Marcellin, author, The Pilot Factor

From the Author

Ask any pilot how they started flying, and you will hear a love story. One much like mine.
From age five, I dreamed of a life in the cockpit. But what dream worth pursuing is not rife with pitfalls, dangers and challenges? Otherwise, the world would be filled with cowboys, ballerinas and astronauts.
While the aviation career isn't for everybody, it always makes for a good tale. Life is an adventure, and life in the sky, exponentially so. Looking back, I feel especially blessed to have lived in a historical sweet spot--somewhere between too dangerous and too boring--where survival by one's seat-of-the-pants and stick-and-rudder skills were more important than programming a flight computer, where flying the plane trumped managing the plane. 
From the first moment my feet left terra firma in a hang glider as a daring (make that foolish) teen, to my head-first dive into the wilds of the Alaska bush, from my extreme adventures in the Caribbean fighting off hurricanes to finally landing in the left seat of a major airline, I feel blessed to have lived more adventures than most. It's both kept me young, and aged me beyond belief.
Many of the stories in this compilation can be found in one form or another on my blog at capnaux.com, NYCAviation.com or other publications such as Airways Magazine, Plane & Pilot, AOPA Pilot and the like, but have never been presented in one body of work. In addition, you will find articles never before published, stories behind the stories, and even several guest posts by fellow pilot-authors. Except where noted, every story in this work is true, and represents what is, for me, a literal lifetime of adventures in the sky.
Whether you are a seasoned warrior of the sky, fledgeling pilot about to embark on your own lifetime of adventures, or a "chairborne" avgeek, I invite you to sit back, relax (well, as best you can, some of these stories are pretty hairy) and enjoy the ride!
Eric Auxier
