Skydancing – High Adventure with Helicopters (by Manley Fredlund)
Price includes shipping in Canada
Helicopter pilot Manley Fredlund writes, “Imagine driving down the road and not being able to pass a helicopter…Imagine how I felt as a rookie headed home, to be stopped because of bad weather, turn around and be face to face with an unending line of impatient truckers, fading into the fog.”
Fredlund also writes, “Gone are the days of landing on a cliff because the helicopter didn’t have enough power to lift the skids of the ground, so the helicopter was revved up, dragged to the edge, tipped off….”
Skydancing is the story of one man’s odyssey through (and with) an industry, through time, and through an understanding of the almost magical abilities that allow man to explore, endure, adventure and conquer. This book is a celebration of the human spirit.
