Two Chicago Events!

I will be at the Garmin Store this Saturday, June 16th. 

Aviation in Chicago... You're Invited

I will be in Chicago on June 16th... at the Garmin store

663 N. Michigan Ave.
Chicago, IL 60611
(312) 787-3221 

I'll be wandering around the store before my signing...
scheduled from 4-5.  The entire day is an event that shouldn't be missed. I hope to see you there.

1:00-2:00 p.m. Electronic Flight Bag presentation.
2:00-2:15 p.m. Break
2:15-3:45 p.m. Controller Q and A.
4:00-5:00 p.m. Flight For Control Book signing!

But if you can make June 16... or if you come get your book signed... I will be returning to Chicago and give a talk about Flight For Control at: 

Ever wonder where inspiration comes from? Why this book? Why now? Where is our industry going? How much truth is there in fiction? 

I hope you'll join us for a fun talk, and get your copy of Flight For Control

Hope to see you there!

Enjoy the Journey!

  1. How exciting! Have a fantastic time!!

    1. Thanks Linda. Krysta, Torrey and Carter will be there so we're going to be babysitting too. :)
      Should be busy and fun.

  2. If they need a babysitter for Biscuit, let me know!

    1. He goes to Doggy Day Camp and runs with the Chihuahuas. I'm thinking he likes it. He also knows which cute girl's laps he can climb into, and get treats. He's one sly dog.

  3. To the woman who left a comment, anonymously, I think you should read the book and make your own decision. Maybe you could read it while he's on the road.

    Perhaps that 99% is the strong female theme? Or the fact that the Professional Pilot's wife wants to go back to work and he thought her place was in her home? Maybe he didn't like the disclosure about the pilot's union? Or perhaps he felt uncomfortable with the couple chapters with sex. Yes, the sex wasn't necessary, but some people really liked it.

    And as one female professional pilot said, "for working pilots we need a little excitement in your, otherwise it's too much like work."

    I hope you will write back after you read it. Thank you!


Thank you for your comment! If your comment doesn't appear immediately, it will after I land. Enjoy the journey!
