From the science of weather to the theory of flight, Doug Morris chats about the A to Zs of the airline world. It takes 55 departments to get an airliner off the ground and Doug brings to light all the people involved – with some entertaining anecdotes along the way. Captain Doug Morris has been writing for his airline’s inflight magazine for 23 years and has answered a gamut of questions. THIS IS YOUR CAPTAIN SPEAKING will draw from his extensive experience and explain everything you ever wanted to know about airline travel: whether airliners have keys, why the bumps, what aircrew get up to on layovers, what’s the deal with ‘mile high memberships’, how to become a pilot. It also provides entertaining anecdotes from air travel’s unsung heroes – flight attendants. It’s the A to Z of airline travel with a twist of humor. The flight deck door will always be closed, but Doug exposes the unique inner world of aviation to the public.
