Book Review: Cockpit Confidential by Patrick Smith

Cockpit ConfidentialHave you ever wondered why some pilots don’t land as smoothly as others? Or–how safe it is to fly through turbulence? Why do airports get congested? How does a huge aircraft fly and stay in the air?

If you’ve ever asked any of these questions, you might want to check out pilot Patrick Smith’s latest book–Cockpit Confidential: Everything You Need to Know About Air Travel. Questions, Answers, and Reflections.

With his passion for flight, Smith answers these questions and many more, to address fears, curiosity, and the cause of unease aboard an aircraft. It’s a smart, funny read, chock-full of useful information that separates facts from fallacy regarding the strange and fascinating world of commercial flying.

Cockpit Confidential is great book for business travelers, frequent flyers, nervous passengers, world travelers, or anyone looking for behind-the-scenes insight.

Vanity Fair reviewer, William Langeweische, said of the book, “Brilliant is the word that applies. A book to be savored and passed to friends.”

Find it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or from Hudson Booksellers.
