National Best Seller. Flying on the Edge is a fabulous read about bush flying in the wild and untamed Canadian north.  A fascinating, thoughtful and engaging account of "flying by the ass of your pants" in the most dangerous and hazardous conditions imaginable says Ed Poole. The best account I have ever read of bush flying says John Crosbie. A book guaranteed to keep readers engrossed from start to finish, Flying on the Edge is a fascinating collection of true incidents and bizarre stories of aircraft and people encountered while trying to develop a small airline business in Newfoundland and Labrador. Author/pilot Gene Manion invites readers to climb in the cockpit and share this thrilling journey with him. Flying on the Edge is a great book, an amazing read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read for those interested in Newfoundland, or flying, or both Very well written, and a great read about backwoods flying in Newfoundland. A nice touch to get Crosbie to write the forward, considering the EPA airline connection..... but the East Coast is run by a few wealthy, connected families. I think bush pilots are somewhat insane (... sealing from an airplane...), but the tales that result make a great book. Well worth the read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An Interesting Read Gene Manion has produced an interesting book that, unfortunately, misses the mark for this reader. I'm an airplane buff, fascinated with the men and machines that opened up the Canadian wilderness. Manion shares many of his flying exploits and they make for an enjoyable read. But I wanted more - more details about the planes in his fleet and the day to day grind of trying to operate the business of bush flying. For the more casual reader who isn't obssessed with such detail, "Flying on the Edge" will prove to be a good read.
