We sit down with writer Beth Ruggiero York and talk about her new book Flying Alone, a memoir.
Beth's aviation journey begins in the mid-1980s when she started taking flying lessons and started a job as a line person at the local airport.
Her book takes us on a wild ride that shows the exhilaration of flying airplanes and the dangers of having to work for a few unscrupulous aviation companies.
Beth shares her story with a striking level of honesty. She was not afraid to write about some of the flying mistakes that she made that could have taken her life.
The underlying theme of this book is how a young woman did all of the hard work that it took to be hired as a pilot for a major airline.
