Wings Over America
The Fact Filled Guide to the Major and Regional Airlines of the USA
Wings Over America: The Fact-Filled Guide to The Major and Regional Airlines of the U.S.A. is a historical, factual, and illustrated overview of the airlines that serve our nation. There are a total of 59 airlines and brand names, all of which has to be approved by the airlines themselves in advance in order to use their logos and most up-to-date information and statistical data. This book is primarily targeted towards airline enthusiasts, filling a void since the last time a book of this kind had been published nearly two decades ago. The author’s passion for aviation and the airline industry has truly been captured in this one-of-a-kind publication. The first official book signing will be held at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington in October, 2009. This book features several airline companies that have never been featured before in a publication of this type. The author has high hopes that not only this book will serve its purpose, but sell many copies to people of interest and airline related environments across the country. He has done a great deal of advertising for the publication, and many have already taken interest as far as placing orders in advance. Wings Over America is a true symbol of the most powerful dynamic industry in today’s world of air transportation, and hopes to keep America forever flying.

In Shadow Flight, Harrison Jones has spun an aviation tale of kidnapping, drug running, and intrigue. The story opens with flight instructor, Kyle Bennett, teaching slow flight and stalls to one of his students, Brooke Roberts, the wife of a surgeon. Brooke’s husband, also a pilot, gave his wife flying lessons as a birthday gift.
Ultimately, that gift could cost both Brooke and her instructor their lives. Fast paced and riveting, this is a flying story that winds its way through almost every facet of a flyer’s career, from flight instructing to charter work to airline flying. Jones’ background as an international captain for a major airline gives him the unique insight required to tell this account of crime and terrorism.
For those interested in flying as a career, this great read is educational in airline operations while the author spins a wonderful yarn. Shadow Flight will not disappoint. Once you begin reading, you will not want to put Shadow Flight down until you are finished.
