This Is Your Captain Speaking: Stories from the Flight Deck (Paperback)
For everyone from frequent fliers to aviation geeks, travel buffs to nervous travelers, Captain Doug Morris tells you everything you want (and need ) to know about flight
Captain Doug Morris has been writing for his airline's in-flight magazine for 24 years and has answered a gamut of questions. This Is Your Captain Speaking will draw from his extensive experience and explain everything you ever wanted to know about airline travel: whether airliners have keys, why the bumps, what aircrew get up to on layovers, what's the deal with "mile-high memberships," and how to become a pilot. It also provides entertaining anecdotes from air travel's unsung heroes -- flight attendants. It's the A to Z of airline travel with a twist of humor. The flight deck door will always be closed, but Doug exposes the unique inner world of aviation to the public.
