Synopsis: From as early as fourteen, Ted Pearcey wanted to be a pilot. Journey with him as his boyhood dream becomes a reality. With more than 20,000 hours in command of various types of aircraft, Pearcey forged a career any pilot would be proud of, climbing the aviation ladder from a mere runway helper, toan aircraft dispatcher, and ultimately aircraft pilot. Stories of daring landings, mid-air mechanical failures, and numerous other potential tragedies puts the life of a pilot into perspective leaving the reader with an unquestionable new respect for the profession.

About the Author:

After completing his schooling at Prince of Wales Collegiate in St. Johnís, Gary went to work for the VOCM radio network, then moved to Goose Bay, Labrador with CBC radio and television. He found his true calling, the print media, upon joining The Evening Telegram in the early 90s where he worked first as a reporter and today functions as a photographer who likes to keep his hand in the writing business. Outside working hours his passion is aviation. His reviews of aviation and military books can often be found in the pages of The Sunday Telegram. And, like his father before him, he cannot help but look up at the sound of a passing aircraft.
