"The Flight For Series"

Karlene Petitt is an airline pilot with a passion for flying, a mission for safety and a determination to support her fellow pilots, and accomplishing this mission through writing. 

"I began writing novels to create awareness of industry issues to improve safety and the pilot job: Fatigue, Pension Loss, Training Regulations, Mental Health, Safety Culture, Safety Management Systems (SMS). As the mission continues the stakes have escalated into the most recent novel, Flight For Sanity, where truth is scarier than fiction. We all know a person cannot be fired for reporting safety, but what airlines are doing is worse than termination. Flight For Justice coming soon!


The Fifth Novel in the Series was just Released...

Corruption runs deep within the airline industry when Captain Darby Bradshaw is grounded and forced into a psychiatric evaluation in response to reporting safety concerns to senior leadership at Global Air Lines. What she doesn’t know is that her removal is nothing short of a conspiracy to silence her safety concerns. Privatization of ATC, approval of drone operated commercial aircraft, short-cutting training, and the untimely crash of a Boeing 737 MAX are all tied to Darby’s report. Her resultant research is about to uncover the truth. How high does this go? All the way to the White House. Not even her friends FAA Manager Kathryn Jacobs, DOT Secretary John McAllister, or Psychiatrist Linda Madden, can do anything to help her. The question is—can she save herself?

 The Second Novel in the Series...

 

Imagine writing a novel and Asiana crashes in San Francisco, and you have a scene that mirrors that event. And then your pilots are flying an A330 to Singapore as a storm builds, they get caught ... and two years later Air Asia takes the same route and flies into that storm but crashes. Fiction that mirrors truth.  Read more here... 

The Third Novel in the Series...


Imagine being an author working on your PhD at the same time you are an airline pilot. What if all those worlds merged into one exciting adventure, where truth was scarier than fiction and the lines between your worlds blurred? You would write the novel Flight For Survival.

The Fourth Novel in the Series... 


It's insane how airlines are cutting training at the expense of safety. Insanity extends to the FAA, where industry issues of automation dependency, lack of hand flying skills, confusion, and lack of understanding stem back to 1996, yet these issues are more prevalent than ever. Imagine what happens to the person challenging the system...
