Most pilots, over the age of thirty remember Gordon Baxter who wrote the "Bax Seat" column in FLYING Magazine for over twenty-five years. "Bax" could paint a word picture of the romance and joy of flight like no other Well, a new "Gordon Baxter" has been born! This time it is a female version of him, and her name is Rebecca McLendon! Becky's latest book, "Settling in: At Home in My Sky" is a sequel to her first book, "The Day I Grew Wings," an excellent read, but, as a pilot, I felt that there was something missing in it. She was a Student Pilot at the time and was thinking "Do I really have what it takes to be a pilot?" I can say Becky does have what it takes to be a pilot. She has "come of age" as a pilot. Becky now writes with authority on the subject of flying, while still incorporating the romance and joy Baxter portrayed. Some of her expressions remind me a lot of him. "Settling in: At Home in My Sky" is Becky's signature book. It is a motivational study for any person who is thinking about flying, especially young girls who wonder if there is a place for them in aviation. It is also a great review for old aviators like me, who may have forgotten what it took to get where we got. Mike Trahan Delta 767 Captain (Retired)show more
