Publisher's Summary

A crash landing at a remote island airstrip...a scary encounter with an ants that defend their tree by attacking anyone who touches it...a mysterious lava-tube cave with hikers' flashlights floating like fireflies down into its blackness...fruit bats noisily lobbing mangos onto your cabin's tin roof...the beauties - and dangers - of the crocodile-infested Kakadu National Park...a rugby match in Northern Territory (and why Aussie girls never root for their teams)...
In this colorful and remarkable book, written by a colorful and remarkable woman pilot, you'll find the most enjoyable way to discover Australia - by flying a light airplane to its places of greatest interest while watching the exotic landscape unroll beneath you: vistas of giant paisley patterned earth, caused by underlying salt strata; stunning views of red landscapes, uplifted and contorted during the earth's primordial boil; the enormously long white beaches of Western Australia, lonesome and edged by brilliant aquas; and the Indian Ocean to the south, marked by hundreds of miles of cliffs (whales breed there.... You could get lucky).
You don't have to be a pilot to enjoy this book. The author also wrote it for nonflyers, in nontechnical terms, to let you see amazing things that pilots experience from their very special perspective.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Get a professional reader ! The writer has a slurred voice, so bad that I gave up on listening.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Tell bowser no. Also the the Burketown cloud. Very interesting.
Maybe the paper book is better, with photos.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Too many meals, motels and booze, and not enough flying.

Could you see Fly Over Down Under: Australian Adventures by Single-Engine Airplane being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Maybe a documentary, after some heavy editing.

Any additional comments?

The story is too wordy. The writer tried to impress with a command of the English
language she does not have.
