    A great read If you like aviation, and I do, this is a great read for you. If you don’t like aviation, it is still an opportunity to learn how pilots develop from novice to professional. I still remember standing next to a Lear Jet as I was about to get my flying lesson in a Cessna 172. It was such an awesome looking craft. Now that I know what it takes to fly one of these machines competently, I am really impressed by how good these pilots are. It is not only hard work, but you have to learn how A great read If you like aviation, and I do, this is a great read for you.

I recommend the book.

    Superb read Greg has written an absorbing biography than fiction ..technical aspects of flying the various Lear Jet models and an authentic experience of airports and human relationships. I am now retired airline pilot and enjoyed the book immensely. Looking forward to his writing about being an airline pilot... he will have some great material.

    Being a pilot myself and having flown for both airlines and private jets the stories in this book relate to similar things I have lived myself. This is very well written, as work of fiction based on real stories. I really enjoyed the book and I think the author should write more because he is a super story teller. Thoroughly enjoyed!

    This is a fantastic book about flying old business jets! This is exactly what it was like to learn how to fly and command old business jets in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Greg Madonna describes to a T what it was like to transition into straight, turbo-jets and learn the hard way how to stay alive. A book this well written and researched comes along every ten to twenty-five years and this book isn’t to be missed. Mr. Madonna has done a great service putting this experience in writing for future pilots to This is a fantastic book about flying old business jets!

Mr. Madonna has done a great service putting this experience in writing for future pilots to learn how it was done once. For doing that, Greg is a Good Fellow.
