Thread: Book: Map of my dead pilots

    Default Book: Map of my dead pilots

    I am about half way through this book and will say it is the most honest look at the air taxi industry in AK. Although written by a dispatcher it tells the pilot's stories. No "No ***** there I was" hyped up stories just a really well written look at the industry. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking at being a pilot up here. Written by Colleen Mondor

    Sounds like an interesting read. Hopefully it will be educational. I just ordered a copy from Amazon as well.

    I'll wait for the reality show to come out. Then I can be an Alaska aviation expert like all the reality show aficionados on the internet. ;-)

    Just purchased on Barnes and Noble for my Nook. Hey Griz, you should have put a map of all of the many accidents of people you described in your book. I would have liked to have seen that. I still liked it without the map!

    Probably should have, and next time I will. Glad you liked it anyway, thanks.

    Written by a Dispatcher for a Fairbanks-based charter outfit, I call it a pretty good read. I'm halfway through it, and will recommend it for all Alaskans interested in, or active in, flying the outback.
