em>The Golden Years of Flying—As We Remember s the legacy of an earlier day in aviation history, recorded by one of the pilots who shared this experience and wrote down his fellow pilots' stories. Captain Tex Searle corresponded with and interviewed several retired DC-3 pilots from the old Frontier Airlines days, and brought all their tales together in one place for a vivid historical account.
Flying the Rocky Mountain region, Frontier Airlines' pilots achieved the best safety record in civil aviation?a record based on the most stringent measure of the number of takeoffs and landings while flying in extreme conditions. Frontier Airlines flew from 1946 to 1986. In her early days, crews hand-flew DC-3s over the high Rockies, in and out of small airports hidden deep in mountain canyons, with approaches often referred to as "black holes" due to their almost ominous darkness and lack of reliable visual references. Relating their first-hand experience of flying through "tornado alley" without radar, flying in canyons of sodden clouds while lightning displays an explosion of highlighted pageantry throughout the heavens, the pilot storytellers in The Golden Years of Flying invite you into the cockpit for a lighter dimension, too?you will surely enjoy the hijinks and hangar tales of their shared experiences.
