'This exceptional collection tells the story from a human perspective that is, frankly, so close to the truth it's scary...' ?In the industry today, there are so many challenges and barriers that many professionals have lost their desire and love for flying.' ?Amazon reader and airline pilot. To be aPilot of the Linemeans to know what it means to ?spar with the devil on a moonless night, surrounded by ten thousand strobing clouds.' From hanging by a thread from dizzying heights as a youth, to the depths of ignominy somewhere over pristine Nebraska, pilots come to terms with, in bits and pieces, the solitude of being an aviator, and what it takes to become a captain of an airliner.Pilots of the Line, a compilation of twenty-eight stimulating and invigorating tales from the sky, plunges the reader into the cockpit to feel every thought, every decision, and every bump. ?Sky Masterson absolutely captures it all'both the excitement and the mundane realities of being a pilot. His wonderfully compelling style of writing combines the cockpit flying narrative that we all love with a very human element. Sky Masterson is a master storyteller!? ?Stan Solomon, Contributing Editor,Airways Magazine
