Squawk 7700 is a timely, eye opening, must read aviation autobiography. My personal experiences as an airline pilot and as acting first officer aboard US Airways Flight 1549 that ditched into the Hudson River, I recommend Squawk 7700 for anyone interested in an aviation career, and mandatory reading for those who fly on our national airline system. Jeff Skiles, First Officer US Airways Flight 1549

Smashwords book reviews by Peter Buffington

  • The Rogue Aviator - In The Back Alleys of Aviation on Sep. 07, 2011

    Ace Abbott's The Rogue Aviator is a fantastic look at a 30+ year career as a professional pilot and the personal journey one might expect in an aviation related flying career. Ace's life story is a fascinating look at the inner workings of the airline business, and exposes the continuous life/work balance a professional pilot faces during a career. The book solidifies my appreciation of putting family first, before career in the airline industry. If you ever wondered what it would be like to strap yourself into a military jet, build some exciting flight time, and then fly for the majors, as well as corporate/charter flying, then The Rogue Aviator is worth the read. Highly recommended for those seeking the perfect aviation related gift as well. Thanks Ace for sharing your story with us and for your service to the country. -Pete, author "Squawk 7700"
