what Private Pilot Magazine writer Jennifer Gwosdof had to say in the
June 1999 issue of Private Pilot Magazine :
"Attention prospective airline pilots! I just found
a way to possibly save you $225. Airline Captain Karen Kahn has released
her new book, Flight Guide for Success. The 287 Page book has eight
chapters full of advice on the best way to train for an airline pilot
career. The book is a compilation of articles previously published in
Flying Careers Magazine and The Ninety-Nine News, the newsletter
of the women's flying organization.
PRIVATE PILOT readers will remember the interview we did with Captain
Kahn in our September 1995 issue. There, we detailed the counseling service
Kahn runs for those interested in an airline career. For $135 (if you
have less than 400 flight hours) or $225 (if you have more than 400 flight
hours), Kahn will meet with you in person or counsel you over the phone
on how to tailor your training to obtain that coveted airline job. Or,
if your flight training is complete, she will help you prepare your resume
and polish your interview skills.
met with the author at the 1998 AOPA convention in Palm Springs, California.
I asked Kahn how this book complements her counseling service. Kahn explained
that the book is meant to precede any in-person counseling she supplies.
When someone calls to use her counseling services, she first suggests
that they read Flight Guide for Success. If someone gets all the
help they need from her book, Kahn is happy that she saved the reader
the expense of her counseling services.
notes that everyone who has purchased her book has been "most delighted."
She says she's "...never had anyone say it wasn't worthwhile."
If someone reads the book and still feels Kahn's personal help is needed,
Kahn says the counseling process is easier, because the client now has
the benefit of the articles in her book. Reading the book first makes
the counseling process go more smoothly.
you're just beginning to acquire your ratings for a future airline job
or if you're already to the point of sending out airline applications,
this book will help you to become a more prepared job applicant."
