Robert S. Grant is a familiar and well-respected name in Canadian aviation circles, having been in the industry for more than 35 years. Throughout his time in the cockpit, Grant has always kept a collection of notes and journals recording his adventures and misadventures, and has written for over forty magazines and publications. Grant, in his usual straightforward style, tells it the way he sees it, and makes no apologies for the way he describes the real world of bush piloting.
