A great read for anyone—not just pilots! This exceptional collection of flying stories is one ride that should not be missed.

This is the captivating inside story of the making of a pilot. Well-known and respected author Greg Brown shares the journey of life's skies as he matures from fledgling to seasoned aviator, encountering aerial adventure and colorful characters all along the way. This book goes beyond traditional flying stories and teaches what it takes to conquer the nagging fears faced by every pilot when attempting to master the challenges of flight.

Flying Carpet conveys the joy and boundless freedom of being a pilot, pursuing the irresistible lure of the map. Whether you fly from an armchair or a pilot seat, this book provides a well written, entertaining and humorous look into our own human nature.

What people are saying:

"Buckle in with Greg Brown and head off to chase a solar eclipse or wrestle with ice on your wings or try to outwit troublesome mountain waves. Each chapter of "Flying Carpet" is a new ticket to extraordinary adventures that transform pilot from novice to journeyman and eventually, skilled aviator. More than just flying stories, this is the tale of a person who evolves to think with the mind of a pilot, question with the curiosity of a philosopher, and see with the eyes of a poet. Pilots will be entertained and wiser for having read it. Non-pilots will thrill to sharing the wings of a skilled aviator. I'm hooked!"
—Rod Machado, aviation author, flight instructor, speaker and official flight instructor for Microsoft's Flight Simulator

"If Greg Brown can't inspire you to join us in the sky, no one can."
—Stephen Coonts, best-selling author and pilot [from the Foreword]

"You don't have to be a pilot, or even a frequent-flyer, to soar with Greg Brown in "Flying Carpet."
—Nina Bell Allen, Former Assistant Managing Editor, Readers Digest

"Thankfully, we have great storytellers like Greg Brown who conveys his love of flying while sharing valuable insights that come only with experience. Great books about flying are timeless. Talented writers, like Greg Brown, are priceless."
—Laurel Lippert, Editor-at-Large, Pilot Getaways magazine
