Confessions of a Very Private Pilot (eBook PD)
Confessions of a Very Private Pilot delivers real-life advice from an owner-pilot on how to evaluate, purchase, train, and operate turbine and light jet aircraft. Each chapter is a story told in a lighthearted manner, complete with real life situations and humorous cartoon illustrations.

Illustrated by Mike Ferrin, this 225-page compilation of stories and life lessons is certain to put a smile on your face. This is a must read for any pilot lusting for that newer, faster airplane, and a fun way to pass the time while traveling, vacationing, or relaxing at home.

"I cannot thank you enough for your book! And I couldn't hold back laughs as I started to read it while on a flight from DAB to PHL. I couldn't put the book down, it was so comical!"
"I brought your book to read while having tires replaced. It should come with a warning to not read it in public places. Got all the way to page 7 when I had to put it away because I was laughing out loud and getting funny looks. Thank you again."
"David, I found myself sitting in the Cessna Service Center in SAT yesterday waiting on some minor repairs to our CJ4. I downloaded you book and read most of it yesterday sitting in recliner in the service center. I have always enjoyed your column in Twin and Turbine, and honestly, generally read it first. You may have missed your calling both as a comedian and writer. Wow I have really enjoyed your book. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in flying. Really great reading found myself laughing out loud several times with everyone looking at me sort of strangely!!! HaHa"
"Thank you for your delightful book. I was reading it last night - not moving my lips too much. But I was laughing out loud on occasion. Really good fun."
"I have closely followed the adventures of David Miller through his articles in various aviation publications. What a treat it was to sit down in a comfortable chair and enjoy a full serving of aviation tales without interruption. I laughed out loud on more than one occasion. Sometimes the laugh was the result of an aviation misadventure that I could never imagine for myself. More often the chuckles came as a result of reading a story that struck all too close to home as I recalled my own airborne antics. David Miller's book is a pure delight and a reminder of all the things that make aviation a joy. It is a must read for the pilot who is serious about flying but doesn't take himself too seriously. Thanks to David for putting a smile on the face of aviation."
