About the Author

Mike Ely has logged many thousands of hours over more than forty years as a professional pilot. He holds an Airline Transport Pilot certificate with multiple type ratings and a Flight Instructor certificate. Mike has taught people to fly in small single engine airplanes and gliders, and several types of turboprops and corporate jets. As freight pilot and an international corporate pilot, he has flown through all kinds of weather, to many places, both exotic and boring. His love for writing was instilled by his father at an early age.

Linda Street-Ely is an award-winning author and has written several books and hundreds of articles. She holds an Airline Transport Pilot certificate, along with a tailwheel endorsement and commercial seaplane certificate. She has air raced all over the U.S. since 2007, including four times in the historic Air Race Classic. Together, Linda and Mike are "Team Ely," five-time National Champions of the Sport Air Racing League, racing their Grumman Cheetah, named the "Elyminator," and dubbed "The Fastest Cheetah in the Known Universe." Besides flying, she loves to travel the world, meet people, and learn about other cultures.
