Summary
"Search and rescue pilots do a tough and dangerous job. They fly into risky situations and put their lives on the line to save others. Search and rescue pilots must be team players, trustworthy, and brave. Readers will learn this and more as they are introduced to these community heroes. Readers get a glimpse at a day in the life of a search and rescue pilot and the requirements one must meet to become one. The text covers flying techniques, specialized equipment, and tasks such as search missions, sea rescue, and flying into combat zones. Readers can evaluate the risks and rewards of this career to determine if they want to pursue this heroic job one day. Fascinating photographs, sidebars, and fact boxes supplement the text's information-rich content"--Provided by the publisher
