Retired pilot releases memoir

Ace Abbott chronicles his aviation adventures in his new book, “The Rogue Aviator: in the Back Alleys of Aviation.”

The book details the author’s adventuresome aviation career that included working for 25 employers. The story travels from five-star hotels and restaurants in Paris to greasy cargo ramps and South American jails.

Ace’s aviation career began in the Air Force, where he served in the Far East as an F-4 Phantom pilot. His fighter-jet stories are followed by eight years of flying experiences during his tenure as a Learjet pilot based in South Florida, while flying to Latin America and the Caribbean. His passengers varied from drug dealers to Palm Beach trust-fund socialites and iconic celebrities, followed by his 22 years and 11,000 hours as a Boeing 727 captain with numerous airlines.
