Can You Handle the Truth?

Flight For Safety... 

Is Available!

Thank you all so much for hanging in with me for the delays on the release of Flight For Safety. While publishing a book makes you feel like you are standing on the street naked, it remains comforting to have confidence from those who have read it and are willing put their name and reputation behind it with an endorsement.


When one of those endorsers is called the "Aviation Expert" I feel pride and confidence knowing that I did my job, fighting for safety through fiction, and you are getting a book you will not be able to put down.
 
John J. Nance, author and aviation analyst, ABC World News, speaks highly about Flight For Safety: 

"Can you Handle the Truth?

That question - loosely adapted from Jack Nicholson’s incendiary line in the movie “A Few Good Men” is an appropriate preamble to reading Karlene Pettit’s thoroughly engaging and lightning-paced new work, “Flight for Safety.” 

The truth is exactly what you get: 

The truth of being a professional airline pilot in today’s stressed airline world, the truth about the major new threats to the safety of airline passengers from pilots who aren’t trained to fly anything but computers, and which political and personal agendas sometimes trump safety and sanity.
 
Can you handle the truth? 
Then this book is a must-read!"

John J. Nance
Author, Pandora's Clock and Orbit
Aviation Analyst, ABC World News
And the reviews continue with
Additional Expert Opinions..

"As a 20-year veteran of the Airbus-class flight deck, I can attest that the cockpit scenes are spot-on. An excellent follow-up to the harrowing, Flight for Control."

Eric “Cap’n Aux” Auxier, Captain-author, 
The Last Bush Pilots, Code Name: Dodger; capnaux.com

“A fast-moving aviation thriller that is ripped from the headlines!”

Chris Broyhill 
Retired USAF Fighter Pilot 
Author: Viper Contract and The Cabo Contract 

"This is a whistleblower drama where the stakes are played out with pilots’ careers as well as innocent passengers’ lives."

Captain Mark L. Berry - 
Airways magazine contributing editor, 
Author of the aviation memoir, 13,760 Feet--
My Personal Hole in the Sky

  18. Karlene - do you have any plans for producing audio versions of your books (preferably narrated by the author herself)?

    1. Audible has the 7 year rights for the first. I almost recorded with them but the storm in NY and my work schedule made that not happen. I should look into doing FFS myself. On my list. Thank you for the nudge. :)
