内容紹介

March 8, 1990: An intoxicated three-man crew, including Flight Engineer Joseph Balzer, fly a Northwest Airlines Boeing 727 with 91 passengers aboard from Fargo, North Dakota to Minneapolis, Minnesota.Northwest Airlines, alcoholismJuly 25, 1990: All three pilots stand trial for flying a commercial airliner while under the influence of alcohol; all three are convicted and sent to federal prison.July 26, 1990 present: Joe Balzer fights for redemption and to regain all that he has lost. Flying Drunk is his story.Since he was a young boy, Joe Balzer dreamed of flying. He pursued his goal with a vigorous passion and earned his pilot licenses, piling up hours of flight time with a wide variety of planes and jets with one overarching goal: to one day fly for a major airline. But Joe had a problem. He was an alcoholic and refused to admit to himself that he had a problem.His alcoholism caught up with him in March 1990, when Joe was arrested with two other pilots for flying a commercial airliner while under the influence of alcohol. His world began crumbling around him and his new marriage faced the ultimate test. He lost his promising career and his dignity. Every major media outlet, including The New York Times, Newsweek, and Time Magazine covered the shocking story for the stunned American flying public. The trial that followed drained Joe s life s savings and federal prison nearly broke him. Flying Drunk is Joe s bittersweet and thoroughly chilling memoir of his twisted journey to a Federal courtroom, his time in the notorious Federal penitentiary system in Atlanta, and his struggle to recapture all that he held dear.Today, Joe is a recovering alcoholic, celebrating more than nineteen years of sobriety. The long road back from perdition led him to American Airlines, where good people and a great organization recognized a talented pilot who had cleaned up his act and was ready to fly again, safely.Flying Drunk is an incredible journey of the human spirit, from childhood to hell, and back again. Everyone should read and heed its message of hope and redemption. No one who does will ever forget it.About the Author: Joe Balzer is a pilot for American Airlines with more than 15,000 hours of flight experience. He has a Master s Degree in Aerospace Education and is also an inspirational speaker, traveling around the country speaking to pilots and other groups on the dangers of alcohol and other addictions, bringing his audience to laughter and tears with his powerful message of hope. Joe lives in Tennessee with his wife Deborah and their two children. Flying Drunk is his first book.REVIEWS "Balzer was part of the infamous three-man crew that in 1990 piloted a Northwest Airlines commercial flight from Fargo, ND, to Minneapolis while intoxicated. All three lost their jobs and flying licenses and served time in federal prison. Driven by his faith in God and the support of his family and friends, Balzer struggled to overcome his addiction. Today, sober for nearly two decades, he flies for American Airlines. Listeners will be captivated by his tale of redemption, which he engagingly reads. Recommended for those dealing with their own or a loved one's addiction issues."Stephen L. Hupp, West Virginia Univ. Lib., Parkersburg"

5つ星のうち 2.0 Doesn't Own Up To His Responsibility 2013/4/27
投稿者 Reader - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Don't Buy the Book and here is why. I am a true crime buff and avid aviation fan but this guy takes no responsibility for his actions. In the book ne doesn't admit to being an alcoholic but says he has "allergies" to alcohol. He was a grown ass man, he could have left the bar at any time or he could have decided not to go and drink with that Captain. Also, when Kitty Hawk gave him a chance to fly again and the ability to log hours, he does nothing but bash them. Man up because people that work with you say you do nothing to help pilots who need help. I am sorry I bought the book and aided in Joe Balzer earning a profit from it.

5つ星のうち 2.0 Made for hollywood 2012/1/8
投稿者 PJ&JJ - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
An inspirational story of recovery but with strings attached. Author appears to embellish and twist certain occurences. As a person in recovery the tradition of anonymity was broken. Resentments our obviously still held against the Captain. I believe the motive to write this story is financial and not genuine. I would be uncomfortable with this individual serving with me as a crewmember and would be suspicious of his motives. I get the sense the author is on a crusade against alcohol use and lacks in tolerance of others who do drink not necessarily abuse alcohol. I question the title of true story. In recovery we use the term rigorous honesty. Perception here is not totally honest.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Airlines should have been doing random testing from the get-go. 2013/5/3
投稿者 Kay L Normankay L>Norman - (Amazon.com)

A revealing book about what used to be routine conditions in the cockpits of all the major airlines. My hat is off to the Company who were brave enough to offer REAL help for addiction to their crews, and a chance to reboot their professions. I have great respect for Joseph Balzer for his determination to return to a safer sky.

5つ星のうち 4.0 He really paid the price 2009/9/15
投稿者 Bob Wagner - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
A fast but compelling read. Joe Balzer was a flight engineer on the infamous Fargo to Minneapolis flight that made national headlines, with the pilot, co-Pilot and flight engineer all legally intoxicated. It would be easy to dismiss him as just another "drunk in the cockpit" but the FAA was certainly as much at at fault as Joe was. Joe asked for a BA test prior to the flight but for some reason was denied by the local FAA examiner. He made the decision to fly but he more than paid the price receiving a 1 year prison sentence. His time (and for some unknown reason not the other two offenders) was mostly served in a federal penitentiary for hardened criminals and not the no-bars "country club" detention centers many non-violent offenders are sent to serve out their time. In my opinion, the pilot was the real criminal and Joe more or less the victim.

It's a story you should read before condeming this man (as I originally did) who he should be commended for his fight back to respectability and re-earning his wings.
I highly reccomend this book to anyone who flies or enjoys reading about a climb back from the depths of despair to a full and productive life doing what he loves.

5つ星のうち 5.0 "Having Been There" 2010/1/5
投稿者 Robert F. Holliker Jr. - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
From "having been there," I can relate to Balzer's story. I commend him on his candor and his honesty throughout his book. It takes courage and guts to reach inside; to be able to pull yourself up from the depths of Hell.

If you know anyone who is "struggling" with recovery from alcoholism, I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It exudes "hope." It shows that no matter how far down one has fallen, there is a better life.

So often in life we are taught by 'story.' Most, if not all, of my greatest lessons of life were learned through 'story.' Vacation Bible School, scout camp, academic classes - whatever, and wherever. Joe offers an excellent 'story' here for anyone interested in recovery, and making something of themselves... "Recovery" is not a 'spectator sport;' you have to get involved! And Joe sets a great example of getting involved with his recovery, and allowing others into his life to help him along the way.

Good job, Joe, and the very best!
