Publisher's Summary

Tri Con Airlines has 9,000 pilots and they need more. When Tri Con hires eight new pilots and assigns them to a pilot class, they find the ground school and flight simulator challenge more than expected. The class is a mix of former military pilots and civilians with varying experience, including a former female flight attendant. Who can survive The Pilot Class and meet the challenge of flying the line as a Tri Con first officer. Personal relationships, a married flight attendant with an abusive husband, a major airline accident, and the federal government are all obstacles that stand in the way of The Pilot Class.

    "Unlistenable Narrator"

    I love aviation novels ever since I read AIRPORT. Robert Serling was also a favorite. I know the narrator, Mr. Block, was /is a pilot, but he's no more qualified to carry a full book than an actor is to fly a 747, with little or no training. His sense of pace, diction and drama is non existent.

    I had held off on this book because of who the narrator was, but the premise sounded interesting. I should have stuck with my gut instinct.
    I could not get through more than 45 minutes of what promised to be a pretty good book, because of the narrator.

    To any authors who are writing novels around aviation, hire a professional reader/actor. Due respect to Mr. Block, you cannot tell a story very well, sir.

    "Love this story line and characters"

    This is another great book by Harrison James. Tom Block's reading/performance of this book added to the excitement of the story.

    "Excellent story in an outstanding narration"

    The near ration was done extremely professionally and made you feel you were right there with the characters.
