In the tradition of the great literary pilots like Antoine de Saint-Exupery and Beryl Markham, Mark Vanhoenacker's new book Skyfaring provides a meditation on modern-day flight. A commercial airline pilot, Vanhoenacker speaks from the cockpit to the questions of the everyday traveler. What was his first flight experience like? How does he manage the jet lag? Has he ever seen anything “up there” he can’t explain? Vanhoenacker explains a lot, from the working life of a commercial flight crew to the physics of flight.
