The Alaska Bush Pilot Chronicles

Readers of Flying the Alaska Wild marveled at Mort Mason‘s true tales of braving the elements at the extremes in a Piper Super Cub. But the bush pilot, adventurer and raconteur was just beginning, and in this book he revisits his most memorable moments of flying by the seat of his pants through blizzards and white-outs, on assignments at times hazardous and sometimes simply whacky, always with a sense of humor and due respect for the limitless wilds of Alaska beneath his wings.

The Alaska Bush Pilot Chronicles

The world of a bush pilot really is the final frontier, and for thirty years Mort Mason was there, clocking enough heart-stopping miles to make most life-stories utterly incredible. Book recounts more of his unlikely adventures in the face of Alaska‘s unforgiving weather and terrain. His stories give readers the rare chance to experience the disappearing thrills and challenges of meeting the American frontier on its own unyielding terms.

Climb into the cockpit with veteran Alaskan bush pilot Mort Mason and get ready for the flight of your life. In The Alaska Bush Pilot Chronicles, Mason shares white-knuckle tales from his thirty years of flying hunters, fishermen, and sightseers to remote locations around the state, where executing spot-on landings on short, narrow beaches and navigating harrowing mountain passes in sour weather are commonplace. Mason approaches every flight with an eye to safety and a dose of common sense . . . which is why he’s lived to tell these tales and learn the lessons of those pilots who weren’t so lucky.

In the folksy style of a seasoned storyteller, Mason recounts his experiences behind the wheel, including more than a few emergency landings, countless foul-weather flights, and even some run-ins with the law. In addition, Mason sprinkles in tales of legendary pilots who’ve flown before him and of those backcountry pilots still flying today in other remote parts of the globe.

So grab a map of Alaska and follow along as Mason edges his way through one hair-raising predicament after another. Fans of his first book, Flying the Alaska Wild, will find The Alaska Bush Pilot Chronicles well worth the wait.
