"This is the captain speaking..." You've heard the announcements, but have you ever wondered what's really going on "up there?" You can't visit the pilots during flight, but now you can get the inside scoop. Join an experienced Airbus flight crew as they face a typical day's work. From the hectic pace of irregular operations, turbulence, and quick turn-arounds, to landing in marginal weather with minimal fuel, this detailed description of a line pilot's job places you in the heart of the action. Captain Grant Corriveau (Uplift - A Pilot's Journey) once again takes you behind that locked door to see what real airline pilots are up to while you're invited to "sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight." Really? After thirty years of airline flying the captain has gained a few insights and formed some strong opinions. Now, he's happy to share... "Fuel gives us time and options. But now fuel is costly, and companies dole it out by the teaspoonful. They dispatch us with minimal fuel reserves based on the reliability claims of weather forecasts. I wonder if meteorology departments ever overstate the validity of their predictions, to justify the multi-millions spent on technical equipment and super computers. Or is this just another example of my old pilot skepticism morphing into cynicism?" Corriveau shares intimate details with typical humor and candor... "An old aviation maxim says: "We don't fly until the weight of the paper equals the weight of the pilot." And, just like my waistline, the paperwork has increased over the years. ... once on board, the datalink will start spitting out paper like... well, like it grows on trees. First Officer Paula hoists about an elm-and-a-half off of the counter, and we make our way back over to the luggage rack." ... "I hear the sounds of galley doors and storage units slamming shut behind me. I glimpse someone in the jetway swinging the main cabin door closed. It must be time to go." Here's your boarding pass, now hurry! Don't miss this golden opportunity to sit in the flight deck, and view the job of an airline pilot from the inside out.

...PILOT BUSTED! Recent TV and Newspaper headlines have brought to the public's attention yet another issue affecting the safety of our Nation's Airline Industry...the latest growing issue since Terrorism...BLOOD ALCOHOL LEVELS OF PILOTS! BOTTLE TO THROTTLE is the "first of its kind" sizzling and true account by Captain Rob...a seasoned Commercial Airline Pilot...and also a seasoned Drinker...(his book is presently under consideration as a screenplay). "Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your Captain speaking"..."It would be my last flight shamefully, from captain Rob to Captain Drunk." Minutes later he was blowing into a Breathalyzer...and also blowing twenty-six years of flying! Yesterday he had been on the brink. He takes you on an incredible journey to his past with the hope of sorting out how it had led to today's "LIVING NIGHTMARE"! Written with humor and compassion, covering sensitive issues of today that began long ago...his life begins as a kid growing up in the BRONX! The "seeds were sown" by an "Army of Drunks" on both sides of the family! Had his path to drinking begun at age seven with a sip of beer on Thanksgiving Day or perhaps with the "whiskey-dripping" cherries? Had his Catholic school nuns and priests given him and other kids good reason to drink? "It never dawned on me that this MAN OF GOD actually enjoyed beatings, especially at swimming practice...we in our skintight Speedos." Was he later charged as a pedophile? The Captain's life continues to lead you through numerous escapades of grade school beer, high school booze, more booze at college, the drinking man's Navy, Europe's bars, South American bars, the alcohol vending machines of Asia, plus more, more, more of everything in California...then later his drinking career comes to an abrupt halt in "SIN-CITY" Las Vegas, Nevada! The Author recently went through a rehabilitation program for his alcohol addiction and shares this positive turning point in his life with readers! He's the son of a New York City Fireman, a graduate of Fordham University, a former Naval Officer, and Senior Captain and Instructor. BOTTLE TO THROTTLE serves as a reminder to his fellow Pilots of their great responsibility regarding the lives entrusted to them. It is also about Alcohol and the question...when does it become a problem? ...Statistics prove that 99% of all American households have at least one TV and that the public's demand for media truth escalated during the Clinton years and rose even higher with the events of September 11, 2001. While Rob's book may be particularly newsworthy on several subjects, his audience is not limited. His unique style of writing plus one continuous adventure after another result in a book that readers will not want to put down...regardless of profession, age, or gender
