Flying Blind, Flying Safe: The Former Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Transportation Tells You Everything You Need..
Featuring new, updated information in this edition, the courageous and controversial New York Times bestseller is by the outspoken former "Top Cop" of the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Mary Schiavo, the former Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Transportation, has written a scathing expose of the fraud, corruption, waste, mismanagement, and dangerous negligence that runs rampant throughout the aviation industry and its ineffectual "policing" organization, the FAA. At the same time, she offers sane and valuable information and advice that will enable travelers to increase their safety in the air. This is an essential work by the ultimate insider: a book that must be read by anyone who flies.
Reviewer: A reader What you don't know will hurt you when flying old planes, and planes not serviced properly. Anyone who turns a blind eye to this information is living in the bliss of ignorance. (and probably still believes in the tooth fairy!) You choose your cars with more caution, your tooth brushes and your lawn mowers. PLEASE MARY SCHIAVO, WRITE ANOTHER UPDATED BOOK. I fly SMARTER AND SAFER because of this book. Consider you choose your childs bike safety helmet and car seat with caution. Please investigate the aircraft you are putting your family in on your next vacation. Recommended by Red Bull on the HUBB.
