The Alaska Bush Pilot Chronicles: More Adventures
Mort Mason's latest, The Alaska Bush Pilot Chronicles, is great reading for anyone, particularly pilots and those who want to be pilots. He captures the side of flying that few today experience; that of the Bush Pilot. We dinosaurs love the memories, and the young pilots will gain appreciation for self reliance and knowledge of their equipment. All pilots love swapping stories about their adventures, whether it's routine or a real white-knuckle experience. Mason captures that mood to the point that I could almost picture myself sitting with him and a couple of other pilots, coffee on the table, hands in use demonstrating a slip, crab or ground loop. His remarkable detailing of names, places, tail numbers and other flight details is something to behold. He covers both the good and bod about flying the back country, much of which should apply to any flight. He does it in such an enteraining manner that this book will be a winner to those who fly only their reclining chair. As an old Army pilot who accumultated several thousand hours in tail dragger aircraft (Bird Dogs, Beavers, Otters) before helicopters took over the bush-type military flying, I can safely state that Mort Mason really grabbed the feeling of a slow approach to a specific point, hanging on the prop, slipping to squeeze into a tight spot and stalling at touchdown -- not 2000 feet down a runway. Heck, when we used paved runways we tried to stop on the runway numbers just for the thrill of it. Mort Mason and his contemporaries did it all day, every day. In these days of high tech flying, where a pilot can take off from Florida and go directly to a map coordinate in Iowa without ever using any of the basic skills beyond programming the GPS, this book gets to the real art of flying. It's filled with humor, some great aviation history, a little nostalgia and a lot of great 'hangar flying' tales...you know, 'There I was, fuel running low...' I love it! --MidWest Book reviewIf you have ever wondered what it would be like to sit around the airport FBO with a Bush Flying legend and just listen to his stories. Read this book. This is a book all pilots who wonder what it would be like to fly in Alaska really should read. It appeals not only to the pilot in me but also the hunter and outdoorsman. For those of us who spend our days in an office only to fly on weekends and hunt and fish a couple of times a year this may be as close as we ever get to this kind of adventure but Mort makes us feel like we are there and we don't have to take the chances. This is the second Mort Mason book I have read. Both are well written books of great stories. --Go FlyingThere is flying and there is flying and this is real 'seat of the pants flying' stuff. Living and working in alaska is a struggle, to say the least, so it is not surprising that pilots who make a living flying freight and apssengers across the barren countryside in small vunerable floatplanes make up their own rules. This is the story of one such pilot and I do recommend anyone who works for the aviation authroity to read. for instance, there was no need to starp passengers in their seats because they were apcked in with the freight, and wher there was not room inside, the pilot simply lashed it on the floats. This book is not simply about flying but the other pusruits in this wild ountry, such as hunting and fishing and also the trials and tribulations of this breed of airman. It is full of stories of adventures that I am sure never take palce anywhere else, and it makes it possible to know aht life is like in a country that most readers will never see, all from the confort of an armchair. --Military Aircraft monthly, November, 2009...is true grit stuff: a collection of fascinating stories about the rough-and-tumble life of an Alaskan bush pilot --Alaska Collector's club, October, 2009If the thought of flying in Alaska has excited you then the second book from Super Cub pilot mort D mason will fire you up even more. Readers of Mort's first book 'Flying The Alaska Wild' marvelled at his true tales of braving the elements at the extremes in a Piper Super Cub. In his new book he revisits his most memorable moments of flying by the seat of his pants through blizzards and white-outs, on hazerdous and whacky assignments, always with a sense of humour and respect for the limitless wilds of Alaska beneath his wings. Morst has clocked up enough heart-stopping miles to give you the rare chance to experience the thrills and challenges of flying in Alaska - but there are lessons we can all take away with us. --Go Flying, January, 2010...is true grit stuff: a collection of fascinating stories about the rough-and-tumble life of an Alaskan bush pilot straight from the pilot s seat. --Alaska Collector's club, October, 2009
