The new audiobook version of Cockpit Confidential is finally for sale. The book has been entirely re-recorded, with a new narrator and, in turn, a whole new feel. The reader, Charlie Thurston, presents the material in a tone and style that better reflects the way the author intended it to sound.
A New York Times bestseller, Cockpit Confidential is wry, thoughtful, and at times provocative look into the confounding world of commercial air travel. It’s the ideal take-along for frequent flyers, nervous passengers, world travelers, and anybody yearning for an enlightened, behind-the-scenes look at the strange and misunderstood business of commercial aviation. More than just a book about flying, its subject is the grand theater of air travel, from airport architecture to terrorism to the colors and cultures of the world’s airlines. Whether it’s the nuts and bolts of cockpit operation or a hilarious critique of airline logos and color schemes, Cockpit Confidential is smart, funny, and brimming with useful information.

— Clive Irving, Condé Nast Traveler
“Cockpit Confidential is the document that belongs in the seat pocket in front of you.”
