Improving Aviation Safety

One Word at A Time!

Mental health is no joke, especially in today's world. But what happens when your mental health is challenged because you provided your company a safety report? What happens if the management you trusted to do the right thing, reacts so violently to your concerns that they challenge your mental health and remove you from duty? Not because you were wrong, but because you were telling them something they already knew to be true. They needed to silence you at all costs, otherwise your report to senior management would impact their far-reaching, longterm plans. Plans that would benefit a few at the very top, but ultimately costing thousands of pilot jobs worldwide and risking the lives of thousands more. 

For all who have started the series at the beginning with Flight For Control, we already know that Darby's sense of humor is part of her survival toolkit. The concerns that Darby possessed regarding training began in Flight For Safety, and was inspired by the tragic accident of AF447. Darby's concerns for Global Air Lines reactions manifest in Flight For Survival. But not until Flight For Sanity does the reader learn the tactic used by management when they can't get rid of an employ because of performance or policy violations. This is a story where Darby Bradshaws world is ripped apart because she provided a safety report to her senior managers. Then follows Flight ForTruth, Darby's battle to return to duty, despite all odds. 

Murder? Mystery? Historical Fiction?

The journey begins here with 
Corruption deep within the Union 

Why Darby was compelled to report safety concerns
are found in Flight For Safety

After Darby reports her safety concerns,
she finds herself fighting for her sanity

The Truth Shall Set you Free?
You'll find that answer in...

Catch up on your reading
As the battle continues 
when Darby Fights for Justice  in
the 6th Novel: 

(ETA...August 2021)

Throughout the series you will wonder where the heck the union was with all this, and why didn't they help Darby. You are about to find out, as the drama continues to unfold. Flight For Appeal will follow, including all the legal drama that ensues after Darby's trial. 

As Darby always says...
"It's better to be lucky than good.
Unless of course you are good and lucky!"

All books can be found in kindle, but
if you choose paper, hard or soft, 
purchase your autographed copy on this blog.

Enjoy the Journey!

  1. I can't wait for August 2021 - not only for the snowpocalypse to end around Lake Michigan, but also to read "Flight For Justice." This weather will give me ample time to stay in side and start re-reading the others.

    1. Jeremy, I wish it was finished now so you could be tucked in reading during your snowpocalypse! I can hardly wait for Justice to be released too. Stay safe, warm and healthy!

  2. Hi Karlene San, I likes Darby's courage to speak-up, also respect the way she works. This is professional way. We all need to understand/learn how speak up culture within the company is so important.

    Please stay safe and keep healthy Karlene San.

    1. Jun, Thank you so much! Not many people have the courage to speak out, because when retaliation occurs the pain in some cases is far too great. Since I have been writing these books, I have met many people who have lost their careers and more because they tried to do the right thing. But, I believe with support of her friends, she will maintain her courage to do the right thing. Culture can change, but only if we stop rewarding those who behave badly for money, and hold them accountable. You'll really enjoy this current novel.


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