Author, pilot, and dad Justin Kelley puts kids at ease by answering twenty of their most pressing questions. 

Flying is fascinating, and kids have questions! 

  • Why don't planes hit each other in the sky?
  • Do you start a plane with a key?
  • Why do my ears feel funny? 

With friendly language, simple explanations, and colorful illustrations, Ask a Pilot is the perfect handbook for aviation lovers and nervous flyers alike!

From the Introduction:

Do you dream of flying? If you answered yes, then this book is for you. On the other hand, if you answered no, and you started to sweat a little, and your heart started racing because the thought of trusting a huge, metal airplane that stays in the air by some unknown magic terrifies you, well . . . this book is also for you. Especially for you. 

In this book, you'll find answers to real questions from real kids. Some are funny, some are serious, but all them have real answers to help make flying a little less mysterious.
