Kershner bases his 38 articles, most previously published, on his half century of primary flight instruction, Navy flying, corporate flying, flight testing and demonstrating airplanes, writing aviation texts, and teaching aerobatics. He was inducted into the Flight Instructors Hall of Fame in 1998. Some of the pieces have morals, he supposes, but mainly he just wanted to get some of the flight profession's tales on paper.

Bought it for my boyfriend who is a pilot. He laughed just reading the title - which is exactly the reaction I was hoping for!

The author gives a bad name to professional pilots. The antics of the characters in this book would only appeal to young guys who like to party and drink. Everyone has to start somewhere so maybe the author will improve as he goes along.

I was lucky enough to meet Bill Kershner some years ago at his Ace Flying Academy in Sewanee TN. Having read his articles in the AOPA magazine it was no surprise to find a very readable book. So much so that I sat awake all night on the flight back to the UK reading it! I hope that he has more stories to tell and will publish them soon

Other than flying, the next best thing for a pilot is talking to others who fly, listening to their stories, telling some of your own and sharing the thought that we all think of at the end of a flight, "cheated death again." Bill Kershner has pretty much done it all from ragwing taildraggers to flying jets off an aircraft carrier. All of his yarns are interesting, some are humorous, many are instructional, gleaned from 50 years of flying. Reading this reminds me of many days when weather or some other matter outside of our control found us sitting around the FBO telling our stories and listening to others. Bill's stories are well worth listening to.

William Kershner's Student Pilot Guide was my flight guide when learning to sit in the left front seat of an airplane. His text was straightforward, lucid and most helpful (I am still alive and kicking, if not flying). "Logging Flight Time" adds a great sense of humor to his ability to impart knowledge and tell a story. A very worthwhile and funny read.

Mr. Kershner has a way of expressing his thoughts in print which I can understand. His instructional books are some of the best so I was interested to see how his pilot autobiography would read. He didn't disappoint me. This is an enjoyable book which will keep you awake when you should be sleeping late at night. I couldn't wait to get to the next chapter every time I finished the one I was reading. It is always good for me to read how these knowledgeable pilots such as Mr. Kershner started their careers and I know there may still be hope for me.
