Miles To Millions (by Bill Grenier)
Price Includes Shipping in Canada.
The dim instrument lights reflect on the faces of the 3-man crew of an Air Canada 747 approaching V1 on the rain-swept active at London’s Heathrow. The First officer that night was our author, Bill Grenier, who explains that something had caused him to look toward the left seat. That “something” was the fact that the captain had slumped over in his seat and was no longer involved in the takeoff process.
This is how Bill Grenier opens his book and the excitement builds as this pilot relates his flying experiences from ab initio days to senior captain of the line, all revealed in a page-turner he calls Miles to Millions. Those “Millions” aren’t miles, by the way, but dollars earned, as we are treated to how high finance became a dual profession for this pilot. Bill’s life reads like a Dow Jones Average on wings.
