Although the author of Flyabout, Dr. Robert Campbell, has enjoyed his career as a Computer Science professor, he’s also enjoyed a lifelong interest in all areas related to aviation.

In order to write with accuracy and precision about the flying sequences in the novel, he became a student pilot and learned to fly a single-engine Piper Warrior and a twin-engine Piper Seneca.

A colleague of his, a fully certified DC-10 Captain, served as a consultant for the airline accident sequences.

Dr. Campbell, a USAF veteran, and his wife Alice, left Boston for the sun and fun of Florida where he still enjoys taking flying lessons and writing novels.
