the challenges of flight.

the map. Whether you fly from an armchair or a pilot seat, this book

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

Great books about flying are timeless. Talented writers, like Greg
