Flying Solo To Sudan

Regular price £25.00

Tax included.

Low-hour recreational pilot Charles Kennedy tries to hitch a ride with his highly experienced pilot friend Timothy on the delivery flight of a light aircraft from England to Sudan, but the weight of extra fuel means it’s a one-person job. The next morning, he gets a text from Timothy: I’m in hospital. Can you do it on your own?

Flight Of The Butterfly is a mix of witty travelogue and honest introspection, on an incredible journey through Europe and Africa, crossing mountains, water and desert, arriving in Khartoum on the eve of Sudan’s current conflict. How to fly a plane, the utility of fear, the joy of solitude, and lessons learned along the way.
