Flying Carpet: The Soul of an Airplane
By Greg Brown

Flying Carpet

Greg Brown’s spirited autobiography recalls his path to becoming an authentic aviator. Told though memorable private accounts of flying adventures to impart lessons he learned along the way. Through these flying stories Greg defines what it means to be a pilot, reflecting on an epigraph from Sir Walter Raleigh, “The engine is the heart of an aeroplane, but the pilot is its soul.” I’d recommend this book to aviators of any age and ability.
