Fasten your seat belt! Ace Abbott joins us on May 16th to discuss his book, the recently released 3rd edition of The Rogue Aviator.
|Ace will be tell us about his wide ranging aviation experiences as well as offer autographed book sales at our Wednesday evening meeting.
His book will put you in the cockpit of the F-4 Phantom for exhilarating Mach 2 test flights and pulse-racing, treetop-level formation flights.
Ace's Learjet charter stories will take you to five-star hotels and restaurants in Paris, jails in Venezuela, and greasy, noisy, air cargo ramps. The final journey encompasses a 22-year adventure as a Boeing 727 Captain with nearly a dozen different airlines during the unstable years of airline post-deregulation (1978 to present).
Ace retired in 2002 after visiting 44 countries with 14 different airlines. He currently lives in upstate New York with his wife.
