神级机长的飞行日记

林钜兴著

现代社会人人都可以乘飞机云游四海。如今每个人都可以更了解飞行了。

神级机长的飞行日记一书中, 林钜兴机长为平地上的我们掀开了头顶那片天的另一面。林机长明确地将他40年的飞行经验雅致的雕琢成25篇文章,诱导着读者去探索民航乘客脑海里穿梭的千种疑问。

究竟是什么造就机师呢,是纯粹的勇气或是遵行系统及精准性的终身承诺, 这些问题都得到精确的解答,其细节甚至可以让一些想进修的准机师却步。作者在全球各地机场的际遇可以让机师及乘客等觉得穿梭在目的地之间可以是极具挑战性而非令人愉悦的事。

航 空安全是乘客, 机师及航空公司三者最重要的一个字。书中以真人真事细说影响着这份契约的因素,以達到准时抵达表现,好让乘客不会误了班机。在这另类的社会接触中,各方的 权利及责任为何?就如林机长所解释的, 信用与镇定在机舱里是并重的,对机上分娩予以预警, 以及不要在机长在其飞机上维护法律及次序时考验他的耐性,就如一位法官会在他的法庭里会说的一样。

神级机长的飞行日记中以简而易懂的语言陈述。当中夹杂的航空术语,作者巧妙地将这些词汇置入读者的脑海里。当再一次听到taxi“德士”这一词时,乘客在把它当成地面上的汽车出租站以前,将会有更清晰的诠释。

本书传达了作者的目标,就是把航空生活带到市井小民的面前。神级机长的飞行日记证明了它在休息室的一席之地。它绝对值得读者一读再读。
