Hard Air: Adventures from the Edge of Flying


"Hard Air is an exceptional read, and a rare piece of work, as much sheer artistry as deep exploration of flight. Olsen is a skillful writer, and it shows here, start to stop."-William Langewiesche, author of Inside the Sky (William Langewiesche )

"His narrative is reminiscent in tone of Beryl Markham's early African aviation adventures chronicled in West with the Night. . . . Olsen . . . does a good job of capturing, in a journalistic interview style, the experiences of the men and women who routinely fly these adventurous missions. The stories are good enough to inspire future pilots."-Sara Tompson, Library Journal (Sara Tompson Library Journal 20080315)

"It's hard to imagine a more gripping book for aviation buffs than Olsen's depiction of some of the hairier aspects of service networks usually taken for granted and seldom properly noticed by the media."-Roland Green, Booklist (Roland Green Booklist 20070330)
