Flight For Safety Comments


"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

"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."

Captain-author, The Last Bush Pilots, Code Name: Dodger;


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

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