"Gordon Page is one of my favorite radio guests. His interviews are filled with great information, but it's the phone call after the show that always leaves me wanting more. Gordon's latest book, Chasing Planes, is the next best thing to that phone call.”
-Matt Jolley, WarbirdRadio.com
“One of the greatest, and seemingly indispensable, talents any good pilot can master (outside of flying itself), is the ability to tell a tale. We pilots are drawn to the latest and greatest in aviation adventures and those with the ability to impart such stories with style, accuracy, and passion are even rarer than the oh-so-uncommon guy that can nail a perfect landing every single time. Gordon is the even rarer double threat… he has plenty of tales to tell and the skill to make them unforgettable.”
-Jim Campbell, CEO/ Editor-In-Chief, Aero-News Network
“If you go adventuring, you should know that there may be snakes, trucks that don’t work, short trips that stretch beyond the days you planned, and those along the way who may make the path more difficult. But there will also be joy, laughter, and a sense of fulfillment that only following your dreams can bring. In that sense, Gordon Page’s book, Chasing Planes, is where the love of aviation took him. More importantly, it’s a book about having the courage to follow your passion. It’s a great ride you don’t want to miss.”
-Paul Hinton, Pilot and Aviation Industry Professional
“Chasing Planes is informative and entertaining. It is a must-read for anyone whose face lights up when an airplane flies overhead!”
-Tim Guerrero, Campus Academic Dean, Redstone College
