Publisher's Summary

Mike Larson's fascination with the Cessna airplane began at age 12 with a test flight at the Cessna Aircraft Company factory. Mike became a professional pilot, starting his 50 year career in aviation with a pilot's license, an old plane and a dream. From shuttling skydivers in a Twin Beech 18 to flying the Douglas DC-8, follow Mike's adventure-filled journey from plane to plane and around the world. When Mike and his wife, Charmian, decided to purchase a plane of their own, they choose the Cessna 195. They were quite unprepared for the onslaught of new experiences and friends this plane would bring them.

Great for Aviation Enthusiasts

This was an excellent book for pilots and aviation enthusiasts. It was not just the history of an airplane but a personal story of the life that it brought to two people. It is a deeply personal and gratifying book with something that every plane buff will enjoy.

This was a great book, but I'm afraid that the audience will be relatively low. I hope I'm wrong because this book deserves to be heard and appreciated.

The narrator did an excellent job. I really felt like the narrator was the author himself.

5 stars all-around.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.
