Weekend Of Aviation

Flight For Sanity's Aviation Debut!  

Amazon Comments are coming in Flight For Sanity... check out what the readers are saying...  

"Wow - what a page-turner! The chapters are fairly short, and reading one chapter is like eating peanuts - you just can't stop. Great plot, could be right out of todays - or tomorrows - headlines. It's been a while since I read previous books in the series, and the characters continue right where they left off. But even if you haven't read the first books in the series (I recommend you do!) you won't be lost, as back-story is fully fleshed out. You will definitely connect with Darby, Kat and John, and will be on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what the bad guys will do next.

I really like the way the author weaves real-life airline/flying issues into the story. If you're an airline pilot, you'll be nodding in agreement as automation/hand-flying/AQP take center stage. And if you're a passenger, you'll be a lot more aware of what's going on.

I definitely recommend this book!"

Captain George Nolly

“Those of a certain age will recall listening to the celebrated weekly radio series beginning with the distinctive voice intoning, “Who knows what evil lurks in hearts of men?” Set against a backdrop of contemporary aviation and politics, Karlene’s latest novel gives considerable insight toward an answer to that question. You could say that “Flight to Sanity” presents automation as both a valuable and a dangerous tool. Karlene uses this tension to skillfully educate readers to the inherent dangers of using automation for personal gain rather to enhance safety.”

Captain Jim Wright

“Once again Karlene Petitt has hit total gold with the latest in the "Flight For" series! From the time I started on the prologue, I was dragged back into the wonderful world of Darby, Kathryn, and all of the crew! I was totally engrossed for the whole book getting to the end and once again shouting WHY IS IT OVER!!! Cannot WAIT for the next installment!!”  
Mark Lawrence

"Being the fourth book of the saga, it's by far the best! You can't put it down once you've started it! A never ending fight against corruption and power abuse and as the previous books, a prevailing tribute to friendship and integrity. I highly recommend it."
Susan Lagiar  

"Karlene's fourth book hits too close to home in an industry riddled with problems. For those of you who saw the movie "Sully," and for many airline pilots, we know the NTSB and FAA are not our friends. Neither is Global Air Lines, as Karlene's character Darby learns all too quickly. I had to stop myself from biting my lip and holding my breath while reading this thriller, because I know from personal experience how much of it is true. If you can handle the truth, couched in fiction, you will love it. If you are a fearful flier, don't read this book, but know that Darby is working against all odds to have safer skies and better training!"
