About the Book

For author Ron Carpenter, his foray into the world of flying and airplanes began with a guy named Hank, a policeman who loved to fly in his off-duty time. After their first flight over Glendale, Arizona, in a Cessna 172, Carpenter was hooked. In So You Think You Want to Fly!, he shares his detailed story of learning to fly and how he eventually became a bush pilot in Alaska. In this memoir, Carpenter tells how he and his wife took flying lessons together, logged air time, passed their exams, and how they purchased several airplanes. He narrates some of their excursions, in-flight experiences, destinations, and near-miss incidents. So You Think You Want to Fly! discusses how Carpenter took the opportunity to fly in Alaska and the wide range of passengers and places he flew. Offering firsthand insights into the world of airplanes and flying, Carpenter gives a look at the world from the seat of a cockpit.
