What would YOU do with a multi-million-dollar aircraft and time on your hands? Join the adventures of a Silicon Valley salaryman whose good fortune put him in the pilot's seat of a radical, high-tech Beechcraft Starship airplane, one of only a handful ever made. He set out on what many only dream of: slowly meandering around the world with no fixed route and no fixed return date. Discover new countries and cultures. Learn about the science, art and challenges of flying a high tech business jet-class plane around the world. And find out how the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 midway through the trip changed aviation and the world's perception of America. The book features extensive detail of places visited, including historic, economic, social, geological and other information. It also includes 150+ footnotes explaining aviation-related concepts, defining acronyms and demystifying flying for non-pilots. Read by the author Dallas Kachan, former Canadian national news anchor and broadcaster. With music and ambient sound accents.
