About the Author:

Greg Brown has long wandered the skies of North America with family and friends. His love of flying is apparent to anyone who reads his "Flying Carpet" column in AOPA Flight Training magazine, or his stories in AOPA Pilot and other publications. An aviator since 1972, Greg was 2000 National Flight Instructor of the Year, winner of the 1999 NATA Excellence in Pilot Training Award, and the first NAFI Master Flight Instructor. He holds an airline transport pilot certificate with Boeing 737 type rating, and flight instructor certificate with all fixed-wing aircraft ratings. Despite such accomplishments, Greg has never lost touch with his roots as a new pilot flying light airplanes. To this day, every takeoff is as exciting for him as the first one. Of course he's not alone; all pilots feel that way. Other books by Greg Brown include The Turbine Pilot's Flight ManualThe Savvy Flight InstructorJob Hunting for Pilots, and You Can Fly!
