This is the story of a young mans dream to become an airline pilot. A joy flight in a Tiger Moth at the age of ten fired his enthusiasm to fly and led all the way to becoming a check captain on a modern-day jet aircraft. Along the way, he was to experience flying in New Guinea not long out of the stone age, face the dangers and rigors of flying the Cairns Aerial Ambulance in a rugged country with no aides, and go through the trauma of the 1989 airline dispute that changed the Australian airline industry and saw him leave Australia (along with 1,100 other pilots) to be involved in the setting up of SilkAir, the regional carrier of Singapore Airlines. He was close to the events that led to the crash of MI185 when 109 lives were lost and was heavily involved in the training of the young new breed of Asian pilots.

James Powells earliest memories are of airplanes. His imagination was fueled by gasoline-powered models; balsa-wood gliders; and stories of military aircraft. Amazing, though, James never believed he would have the opportunity to fly in an airplane. While stumbling through school unsure of a career, James took a dollar ride in a Cessna 150. After a thirty-minute flight, he had an epiphany. As they taxied in, Jamess heart and mind were still in the air. Eureka! Ive found it, he said to himself. This is what I want to do. I am going to fly airplanes. Powells path from that day forward was straight and narrow: he joined the military and successfully graduated from the Air Forces pilot training class at Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi. But that was just the first step in what became a career as a professional aviator. In this moving memoir of hard work and dogged determination, Powell recounts the rocky road he traveled on his way to becoming a commercial pilot. Despite the diversion of a teenage marriage and divorce, and friends ridicule, Jamess determination never wavered. Read how author James Powell used his gift of tenacity, believing he could do anything if he worked long and hard enough in Of Dreams and Coveralls.
