Publisher's Summary

In Skyfaring, airline pilot and flight romantic Mark Vanhoenacker shares his irrepressible love of flying on a journey from day to night, from new ways of mapmaking and the poetry of physics to the names of winds and the nature of clouds. Here, anew, is the simple wonder and transcendent joy of motion and the remarkable new perspectives that height and distance bestow on everything we love.

Beautiful, intelligent writing

This was a completely fascinating book, beautifully written. The author is creative and erudite...I would simply love to sit next to him at a dinner party...I would want to monopolize him!!

As someone who is always a little irrationally afraid of flying, found myself very assured, hearing his interesting thoughts about the mechanics of airplanes and the skills involved in flying them.

I know if at least three people who will be receiving this from me as a gift.
