This Is Your Captain Speaking - A Common Sense Manual for Keeping Your Wings Level
By Captain Ed Owen
While admittedly somewhat limited (about the width and height of an aircraft windscreen) and woefully short of the "big picture", the pilot's perspective offers some unique insights. Those insights are presented as a series of tales (of the sort told by flight crews everywhere) that, while amusing and lighthearted, give reason to pause and think.

You really have to check out the unique tales of this pilot. We have taken him in and made him a Chicken Wings character for many reasons but one sticks out: He is really funny !!
His book is really a good gift for anybody you know who loves to read. It's a compilation of tales and funny stories that are very, very loosely connected. This alone also makes it perfect for a pilot like Chuck who can’t follow a storyline through the whole book. But you don’t have to be a pilot to enjoy this book. It’s a lighthearted outlook on life through the eyes of an aviator. We would even go a step further and claim him to be sort of a “modern Saint Exupery” we like the book so much. It is also extremely well written and a real pleasure to read.
