Safety Last – The Dangers Of Commercial Aviation

Minimum Donation €12.00

The author of this eye-opening expose is a scheduled jet airline captain, as well as a fighter pilot in the US Airforce Reserve, with twenty years of professional flying experience. Writing from the point of view of a pilot, he covers every aspect of commercial aviation and brings the reader to the conclusion that it is a much more perilous means of transportation than is generally suspected. Most of the material in this book has never been touched upon in any previous book on air safety: how poorly equipped most airports are; how airlines write their own safety regulations and then succeed in evading even those requirements; what happens on the flight deck; and the dangers inherent in even the most routing shuttle flights
