This Is Your Captain Speaking: Stories from the Flight Deck

Morris, Doug

  • For everyone from frequent fliers to aviation geeks, travel buffs to nervous travelers, Captain Doug Morris tells you everything you want (and need!) to know about flight

    Captain Doug Morris has been writing for his airline’s in-flight magazine for 24 years and has answered a gamut of questions. This Is Your Captain Speaking will draw from his extensive experience and explain everything you ever wanted to know about airline travel: whether airliners have keys, why the bumps, what aircrew get up to on layovers, what’s the deal with “mile-high memberships,” and how to become a pilot. It also provides entertaining anecdotes from air travel’s unsung heroes — flight attendants. It’s the A to Z of airline travel with a twist of humor. The flight deck door will always be closed, but Doug exposes the unique inner world of aviation to the public.
