An inspirational and exciting adventure with tips and advice for young pilots starting their careers.
Inspired by the first moon landing at the age of 10 in 1969, Jeremy Burfoot decided to become a pilot. He joined the New Zealand Air Force as a navigator at the age of 18 and was the navigator on the search for the Mt Erebus DC10 crash. He obtained his pilots licence privately while still in the RNZAF and then went to Papua New Guinea to fly for Talair PTY for a couple of years.

He joined Qantas as a pilot in 1984 and was promoted to 747 Captain at the young age of 31. He took leave from Qantas in the 90s and flew 747s for Japan Airlines based in Anchorage, Alaska and Honolulu. He returned to Qantas and flew the 747-400 then the Airbus A380 before Covid 19 terminated his career in 2020. He has 23,000 hours of flying experience. He currently flies a paraglider to get back in the air when he feels the need.

This book has been written with the hope of inspiring young pilots to succeed in an aviation career. It includes tips for pilots and bonus chapters on the future of aviation, pilot health, flying the big jets, what makes a good pilot and getting employed as a pilot. In addition, it includes a bonus chapter on training by Captain Matt Gray, former head of Qantas training.
