Fellow airline pilot and (more well known) blogger Karlene Petitt has released her first novel. Although I have not had the chance to read it, I wanted to let you know Flight For Control is available for purchase.
So, if I haven’t read it, why am I promoting it? Two reasons:
- I’ve enjoyed Karlene’s writing on her blog. She always has insightful information about our profession.
- She is holding a drawing for anyone who purchases the book this week. After purchasing, return to her blog and leave a short comment to be entered into the drawing. (ie: “I just bought your book!”) If you win, Karlene will guest speak at your book club… anywhere in the world.
The novel is fiction. But, intertwined in the fictional story are issues that have plagued the airline industry over the last decade. Personally, I cannot wait to read it.
From Karlene’s Site:
Three airliners have crashed in the last year and nobody knows why. After a ten-year leave, Kathryn Jacobs has been invited back to the N.T.S.B to investigate this series of unexplained airline crashes. But her husband, Captain Bill Jacobs, has his concerns. While her twin daughters are off at camp, and Bill is actively campaigning for the Pilot Union Presidency, Kathryn secretly begins her investigation.
What she learns will shock the nation.
Flight For Control is a thriller that reads like a mystery. But to Kathryn, there is no mystery on the condition of the airline industry—it’s broken. Planes are crashing. Pensions are lost. Pilots are financially and emotionally bankrupt due to fatigue, furloughs, and loss of seniority. It’s time that someone takes control before it’s too late—unless it already is.
Your life is in your pilot’s hands.
Do you know who’s flying your plane?

Don’t forget… After you purchase, leave a comment on the page to enter her drawing. If you win, she’ll travel anywhere in the world to speak at your book club. The further away you live, the more valuable the prize.
Note: I am receiving absolutely nothing for promoting this book. Since you read my blog, I assume you have an interest in aviation. I’m merely passing what should be a “good read” along to you. As always, thanks for visiting!
