A candid, funny heart-warming account of one girl's struggle to achieve her dream - to fly! And it's all here - the agonies and ecstasies of failure and triumph.
A sparkly and captivating read. Initially rejected for the job of an air hostess, she then learned to fly, became a flying instructor and subsequently an executive jet pilot for the world's rich and famous and thereby offers us a unique glimpse into the world of private jet travel.
She's done the lot - airline, freight, filming and corporate VIP, so with her knack for breezy yet vivid description, she paints a lively and comprehensive picture of this dynamic industry.
She uses her passion and sensitivity to reflect, not only on the mysterious beauty of our planet, but on the many quirky characters on her journey around it!
From Siberia to the south of France, from Bulgaria to Bangkok, and from Africa to the Arctic circle, she's flown there and takes you with her on a truly global romp, told from a 'bird's eye' view.
We get impounded in Siberia, ferry a WW2 bomber over the Atlantic, depressurize at night in the USA, and fly rock stars round Europe.
So buckle up and enjoy this very special ride 'cause you're cleared for take off.
