Description

The secret side of airplane travel, straight from the captain’s mouth


Captain Doug Morris has been writing for his airline’s inflight magazine for 23 years and answered a gamut of questions. This sequel to his bestselling book, From the Flight Deck: Plane Talk and Sky Science, explains everything you wanted to know about airline travel, such as: Do airliners have keys? What do aircrew get up to on layovers? Why the bumps? This Is Your Captain Speaking caters to the frequent flyer, the nervous flyer, aviation geeks, travel buffs, relatives to airline types, and that nosy neighbor who wonders what airline pilots do. Doug discusses how to become a pilot and the required training in the simulator, and shares passenger anecdotes about unsung heroes (flight attendants) and mile-high memberships. 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 aviation world to the public. It’s a must-read before or during your next flight.

Wow this book was extremely informative and interesting. I liked the way the author has planned the book as if they would plan a flight route out. I really enjoyed the humour and comical aspect of the author as although there were many facts within this book there were points where the author added humour which was great as it stops you getting fed up! I think every single possible question ever asked about flights, flying, weather, aircraft has been asked and answered in this book. I enjoyed the read as just a nosy person in general, but this book would be great for aspiring pilots, people who enjoy flying and what to read the inside truths, or anyone who enjoys biographies. Thank you to @netgalley and @ECWpress for allowing me to read this ARC. #ThisIsYourCaptainSpeaking #NetGalley

Doug Morris' "This Is Your Captain Speaking" is a fun, informative read, even if you have been flying 100K miles annually for years. Written in approachable (no pilot's license required!), folksy prose, the information Capt. Morris shares puts the nervous flyer at ease and leaves the most frequent of flyers saying, "Well, that I never knew. Now I know." This is a quick, captivating read, too. Thank you to #NetGalley and #ecwpress for the chance to preview this book.
