About this title


Be the co-pilot on this adventure around the world in a single engine plane. You are in the right seat watching and hearing all the action and communication as CarolAnn flies a 15-hour leg from California to Hawaii or a 12-hour leg from Darwin, Australia over Indonesia to Singapore. When the engine coughts, your heart leaps into your mouth. When the radio doesn't work, you walk step by step through the problem analysis and find a solution to allow the flight to continue. Enjoy the flight, enjoy visiting the different countries, and feel the freedom.

About the Author:

CarolAnn Garratt is an 1800 hour pilot who started flying in high school and soloed in a Citabria in 1972. Prior to this trip, Carol Ann flew across the US to Colorado in 2000 and to Alaska in 2001. Her over water flying experience consisted of three trips to the Bahamas and crossing Lake Michigan four times.

She didn't fly much during her "work-a-holic" days while climbing the corporate ladder, but after losing her job in 2001 she has flown Young Eagles and Angel Flights as well as obtained her CFI and CFII. She planned this Around the World Adventure in 2002 and had the fun of making it a reality in 2003. She also flew Young Eagles in various countries during her journey.

Carol Ann dedicated this trip to her mother, Marie, who died of ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease and one of her objectives was to increase awareness of this devastating disease and to raise donations for research. So far, she has succeeded in raising almost $27,000. 100% of all book revenue goes directly to researching a cure for this disease.
