'Skyfaring' By Mark Vanhoenacker

markvanhoenacker-skyfaring.jpg

  The twenty-first century has relegated airplane flight—a once remarkable feat of human ingenuity—to the realm of the mundane.

Mark Vanhoenacker, a 747 pilot who left academia and a career in the business world to pursue his childhood dream of flight, asks us to reimagine what we—both as pilots and as passengers—are actually doing when we enter the world between departure and discovery. Vanhoenacker's book is Skyfaring: A Journey with a Pilot.

Originally aired July 2015.

And yes, he reads every single book.
