review The Map of My Dead Pilots 103 Northern Exposure meets Air America in this expose of the daily life and death insanity of commercial flying in Alaska The Map of My Dead Pilots is about flying pilots and Alaskaand specifically about those pilots who take death defying risks in the Last Frontier and sometimes pay the price Colleen Mondor spent four years running dispatch operations for a Fairbanks based commuter and charter airline and sh. I live in a world that revolves around aviation so I was very excited to read this memoir Piloting a charter plane in Alaska means you are flying in what can be harsh conditions It also means flying by sight unusual cargo everything from dogs to dead bodies and it can mean some pretty risky situations for the pilot and the crew I was immediately drawn into the book by Colleen Mondor s writing style it is straightforward but the feelings she had for the people and the place really came through You get an opportunity to look into a uniue way of life and see all that is beautiful and awful about the pilots what brought them to Alaska and how they ended up flying these planesOne aspect that I find very appealing is that you don t have to be an aviation buff to enjoy this book The experiences of the pilots go beyond simply flying and are full of adventure sorrow laughter and even death It is a way of life for them Many of the stories stayed with me but one in particular about a young girl who was overdosing left me shaking my head I won t spoil the story but it wasn t what I expected at all When I finished reading this book I had to remind myself that this was actually about real people and that these people or those like them are still flying and some are still not making it back It is a world that is very different from my comfortable suburban existence which made it all the fascinating to me This is a wonderful book and I can think of several people on my list who will find it in their stocking this Christmas

review The Map of My Dead Pilots 103 E knows all too well the gap between the romance and reality of small plane piloting in the wildest territory of the United States From overloaded aircraft to wings covered in ice from flying sled dogs and dead bodies piloting in Alaska is about living hard and working harder What Mondor witnessed day to day would make anyone's hair stand on endUltimately it is the pilots themselves; laced with ice and whi. I don t remember where I heard about this book maybe from Goodreads Maybe from an article somewhere else on the internet But I am so glad I read this because it really resonated with me it s about aviation in Alaska superficially but importantly it s about life I for one am not familiar with aviation in the slightest but it didn t matter reading thisI loved the writing in this book I think the essay format was perfect for telling these stories I also loved the stories the pseudonyms got a little confusing Tony Sam Scott Frank Bob etc especially since it was obvious that every one of these people was living larger than life in the author s mind bland and interchangeable pseudonyms did not do them all justice What I most want to know is how the author got this book published without drawing down the legal wrath of well anyone Did she time this specifically for after the Company went out of business or did they go out of business because of stories like this Or for some other reason entirely This sort of tell all style has gotten than one person fired or sued and I am sure there were a number of people who were not pleased that all the blatantly illegal details of how the business was run that are shared in this were made public Especially since many of the deaths of the titular pilots in uestion were directly or indirectly caused by Company policies or procedures

review The Map of My Dead Pilots 103 Skey death and camaraderie silence and engine roar who capture her imagination In fine detail Mondor reveals the technical side of flying the history of Alaskan aviation and a world that demands a close communion with extreme physical danger and emotional toughness The Map of My Dead Pilots is an engrossing narrative whose gritty no holds barred style is reminiscent of the works of Ken Kesey and Tim O'Brie. Wow I could not put down this book It reminded me of the book The Things they carried in that it has many of the same themes But instead of war this was bush flying in Alaska Like war there was the death of too many friends And the death was always close at hand and almost random It is also how tragic experiences still victimize those that had no physical wounds But it also celebrates the friendships and black comedy from those experiences I thought back to a time when I worked overseas at a small school in the middle of a giant slum The friendship were intense but also the laughs Because when it is really terrible all you can do is laugh You are so glad to leave but then realize you miss the close friendships that adversity brings Does Alaska attract the riskiest pilots or does flying in Alaska push pilots to take too many risks Mondor seems to think the later
