Piloto, Migrant Worker to Jet Pilot Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Piloto, Migrant Worker to Jet Pilot

PILOTO tells the story of a Mexican-American who as a young stoop laborer in Central California's sweltering farm fields dared to dream a distant and utterly preposterous dream-to be a pilot. Through initiative, determination, and more than a little luck, he became one of only a handful of Mexican-Americans to ever serve as a test pilot in the United States Air Force. Tightly woven into this flag-waving account of his trials and successes in the tight fraternity of Caucasian military pilots is a unique career in an exacting and unforgiving profession. The book will serve as inspiration to young and old alike.
