American Sky by Fred Tribuzzo on Closed the Cover
AMERICAN SKY SYNOPSIS AND BIO

American Sky: Good Landings and Other Flying Adventures is the author’s journey from antiwar protester of the late sixties to the cockpit of the world’s fastest business jet. It’s the story of a young man going to work for a father and son who not only teach the skills for starting a Lycoming or Continental engine on a hot summer day, but provide the daily humor, courage, and wise-words to pursue dreams.

Whether attending a training session with a fellow pilot whose relative snapped the famous photograph of the Wright Brothers’ first flight, or listening to a grouchy cab driver’s pithy remarks before a long flight home, the author encounters people and random experiences as if they’re signposts of life. He learns that a teacher can often be a place, a stranger, a storm, the sky itself.

The world comes awake, and on the eve of starting flight lessons, a World War Two veteran will insist the author shun sailplanes and experience powered flight, the joy of driving straight up into the clouds.

In American Sky, events and people shift in time, and experiences blossom unexpectedly. Yet the influence of a mentor remains a visible, poignant anchor.
