A past love of mine was one of the pilots/flight instructors interviewed by Aleshire. I remembered his time at Luke AFB well but lost track of him after he was sent to Korea. It was nice to read that he has made a good life for himself as I knew he would. Aleshire effectively portrayed his intelligence, talent, charisma, and personality well. Although a bit of a choppy read, the author does a fine job portraying the life, commitment, and dedication of a pilot.

Great perspective into what goes into flight training. Content is good, writing style a little difficult to follow at times. I appreciated it as the mother of a pilot.
