Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Pilot of Fortune details the adventurous life and remarkable times of pilot extraordinaire, Sheldon Luck.

It weaves the biography of a man who is truly a pilot of fortune into the fabric of Canadian history and the prominent role that aviation has played in it. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in flying or Canadian history, or both, as seen through the eyes of a very dynamic participant, a pilot who was the very type of pilot that movies are made of.

It is the first book in his aviation trilogy, Walking on Air.

The two other books are Earth Angels Rising - a tribute to the more than 1,500 civilians from 18 countries who helped make Ferry Command of WW II possible, and C-IIGY Flies!, the story of a handful of dedicated aviation enthusiasts - the AEA 2005 Inc., a non-profit group near Niagara Falls, Ontario.

This group built a full-scale replica of Canada's and the Commonwealth of Nations most important aircraft, the Silver Dart.

This replica helped Canada celebrate 100 years of controlled, powered flight in Baddeck, Nova Scotia on Feb. 22nd, 2009 capping a century of powered flight for Canada, a lasting tribute to Alexander Graham Bells group of intrepid international aviation pioneers.
