All Ages

Author Neil Hansen

Author Neil Hansen (Flight: An Air America Pilot's Story of Adventure, Descent and Redemption) spent more than a decade in Southeast Asia as a captain for Air America, the CIA's airline that operated there during the Vietnam era and the Secret War in Laos. Neil reveled in the risky flying that fed his adrenaline addiction. Upon returning to the States, ultimately unable to find work, and unable to let go of the Air America exhilarating rush, he saw the profession he loved come to an end when his trajectory veered off course.
