“*****” by OCProf  Nov 3, 2016 – ” Very impressive and of interest to anyone, whether they like flying or not!”                                                                                                                                                  “I have been flying for a half a century and almost everything here, from pilot training to what is best to eat on board was new to me. I was especially interested in the rigorous testing the government requires of all aircraft. Also of interest was the debunking of the notion that all a modern pilot has to do is set the plane on auto pilot and sit back and check their Facebook page  or read a book. This is an impressive and highly readable book and sure to make the experience of flying more interesting to everyone (Oh the wings are SUPPOSE to flex?) Highly recommended and a great gift idea”.

“*****” by Dr. George E. Nolly  Nov 22, 2016 – “Really Pulls Back the Curtain!”                        “This comprehensive book does an outstanding job of explaining every aspect of airline operations, from pilot training to weather and maintenance issues to mainline/feeder operations. If you’re a white-knuckle flier, this book will really go a long way to put you at ease. And if you’re a travel pro who STILL can’t understand why you hear a ‘barking dog’ every time your Airbus jet pulls up to park at the gate, you’ll finally find out! This book covers it all, in a lucid, easy-to-understand presentation. As a retired Captain with 36 years of airline service, I’m impressed. I’m really impressed!”  (Author of The Hamfist Series and Ready for Takeoff)

“*****’ by Jim Brewer Dec 31, 2016 – “LET’S GO FLY! Everything  you, as a passenger, need to know about commercial airline flying. This may save your life!”                                              “An extraordinarily clear, concise and detailed book on everything that a passenger needs to know about commercial airline travel. Starting with her passion for flying at 15 and moving ever forward in this exciting career path and giving us a brief history of the aviation industry before and after WWII, getting into the design, engineering, production of modern airliners, Captain Laura covers all aspects to try to assure you, the passenger, that every eventuality has been taken into account and that you should be able to rest easy on your flights. She uses a lot of industry terminology and concepts but explained it all in an easily understood and light approach. Safety and health are always the prime concerns, throughout the book. There are countless tips and recommendations how to stay well and in good physical and mental shape even when your flights are delayed, rerouted or cancelled. Choosing an airline, a destination, a route, etc. should always include a number of conscious  decisions, except just price. All of this is well explained, as it should be, because your life depends on it! Hooray fir the great job the Captain has done here!”

“*****” by Professor Jennifer Zamora MPAP, PA-C Dec 25, 2016 – “We both liked reading about the design of the plane and how much it can really take due to weather or other issues”. “As a health care provider, patients ask me to write them prescriptions for sedatives for flights due to their fear. Now, I have been able to tell them about this book, especially since it has helped my husband’s fear of flying. We both liked reading about the design of the plane and how much it can really take due to weather or other issues. We even got great tips about the time of day to book our flights for a chance to smoother flights and less turbulence. We also both liked it when she gave relaxing techniques, explained what the sounds are on the plane that may make people nervous, as well as gave details of the extensive training pilots go through to keep us safe. She also gives continued tips and great advice on her website and social medias. Thank you Captain Laura!!!!”
