Synopsis: From a very young age, Gino Pastori knew he wanted to fly the iconic DC-3. He wanted to fly freight because it was flown at night. Gino shares his memories of what it took to become a commercial pilot and what it was like to live the dream. With more than 7,400 flying hours logged in DC-3s, there were many incredible flying stories. This memoir includes the most memorable stories, such as flying a plane after being temporarily blinded by a lightning strike. Through the stories, Gino describes the skills needed to be a successful DC-3 pilot. Since the DC-3 is a taildragger, it requires unique skills during take off and landing. Care must also be taken with the radial engines to avoid damaging them. Flying freight also involved long hours and occasionally sleeping under a wing of the plane. There are also moments of celebration like the feeling of that first ever flight at the controls of a DC-3. This fast paced 23,000 word memoir puts you in the pilot's seat of a great adventure.
About the Author: Gino Pastori was a commercial pilot for nearly twenty years. He started his career flying freight in the iconic Douglas DC-3. Most of the DC-3s he flew began life as C-47 cargo planes during WWII.
