The world of air travel, often in the news, is fascinating but a little wacky. Patrick Smith has a particular talent for underscoring these features with irresistible wit and wisdom. In addition to his knowledge of all things aviation-related, Patrick shares his personal and sometimes surprising insights into geography and culture from his travels to over 70 countries. Cockpit Confidential is a completely revised edition of the 2004 Riverhead book ASK THE PILOT, with 50% entirely new material & another 30% or more revised, updated, and expanded material. New discussions cover a wider variety of topics with an emphasis on the most newsworthy: security, airfares, pilot training, as well as airline customer service issues. Also included are an informative air travel glossary and an index.
