The Starship Diaries

Two Years Exploring the Planet in the Last Aircraft of its Kind

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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. Not yet a pilot yourself? Be careful - you might have to become one after coming along on this epic adventure.
