Ever wanted to know how a jet engine works or what happens if a plane is struck by lightning? Behind the Flight Deck Door provides insider knowledge about everything you have ever wanted to ask a pilot! Since 9/11, flight decks of modern airliners have become off-limits to the flying public.

All told with a dash of humor, this book will demystify the art of airline travel, address those urban legends, and settle the nerves of any anxious flyers. Simple, concise explanations cover a multitude of things passengers have asked Brett and his colleagues over the years. -What is a small technical delay? -Can the cabin door be opened mid-flight? -How much do pilots really earn and do they get free flights? -Can you get stuck to the toilet? -Is it still possible to view the flight deck?

It offers an enlightening point of view of the all-important necessity of air travel with rare glimpses of the secret world airline pilots inhabit.
