Stuck Mic AvCast Episode #20 – Airline Crashes, Conspiracy, & Flight For Control


In this episode of the Stuck Mic AvCast, we took a slight deviation from the normal show format once again as we interviewed a very special aviator about her first novel, an aviation thriller involving airline accidents, conspiracy, and more. Join us in meeting Karlene Petitt, author of Flight For Control, as we learn about the 8 airlines she’s worked for in her flying career including the inspiration and backstory behind the book. If you haven’t read Flight For Control, you should. Len read it in 3 sittings, it was that captivating! A must read, highly recommended.
