                                         – –  FERRY PILOT – Nine Lives Over The North Atlantic  – –

                                                                        with Kerry McCauley

Book:  FERRY PILOT: Nine Lives over the North Atlantic Kerry McCauley has the job most pilots can only dream of: delivering small used aircraft to locations around the world.  In his 30 years as an international ferry pilot, Kerry has delivered almost every kind of airplane you can name to almost every location you can think of.  In his long career Kerry battled fuel system malfunctions over the Atlantic, a total electrical failure at night over the Sahara, getting lost over Africa and getting struck by lightning off the coast of Portugal.  Not to mention losing his engine and having to fly dead stick in a thunderstorm.  Kerry’s almost insatiable, reckless quest for danger and adventure also led to putting international smuggler and bank robber on his resume.  Kerry found the answer to the question “What could possibly go wrong?” time and time again.  But his skill, ingenuity and a heavy dose of luck were what allowed him to survive the countless mishaps, catastrophes, close calls and a nearly fatal plane crash.  While “Ferry Pilot” is a riveting account of one man’s crazy thirst for thrills and adventure, it’s also a portrait of a brave and devoted family man who lost many close friends, including his first wife, to the dangerous skies.
