From the Back Cover:

Galt Airport in northern Illinois, known to its pilots as "One Zero Charlie" (for its Federal Aviation Administration designation as Airport 10C), is a microcosm of grass roots aviation. Through his years of flying, Laurence Gonzales flew out of One Zero Charlie and has come to know the flying men and women who have made it a sort of all-hours club, where someone is always brewing coffee, and the doughnuts are fresh from the bakery. By turns exhilarating, intimate, hilarious, and tragic, this book explores the most democratic America there is, the only qualification being that you have to be crazy to join. No detached observer, Gonzales is deeply involved in his Blue Highways of the sky. He skillfully rips through our illusions and gets at the perverse reality of aviation, in which science can turn to witchcraft in a flicker, and those who aren't quick to notice the transformation are quick to perish.

From Library Journal:

This is an arresting book on private aviation, wherein the author describes, in storytelling fashion, how what appears to most of us as a hobby is actually a way of life bordering on obsession to the many who are intimately involved. The importance of "general" as opposed to "commercial" aviation is never quite spelled out, but readers will be both entertained and moved by this compelling portrait. Gonzales, author of The Still Point (Univ. of Arkansas Pr., 1990), successfully tells of the men and women who pursue this lifestyle and the needs and desires that drive them. Packed with a variety of tales from snowblind takeoff and landings to the horrors of plane crashes, the book is full of action. Recommended for popular aviation collections.
