NEW YORK and PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan James' new transportation book release, Venture Into the Stratosphere: Flying the First Jetliners by Dominic Colvert of Palo Alto, contains true memoirs from the golden days of commercial aviation. It is for anyone that is interested in aviation—the secrets of the flight deck and how the monumental growth in flight safety came about.

Venture Into the Stratosphere takes place during the 1950s, when the world was first introduced to jetliners. After the second World War that left almost no family untouched, the jet age marked a time of positive social change in the world. The memoirs recount the origins of the jet age from personal, social, and engineering perspectives.

Dominic Colvert worked as a flight engineer during the rise of jetliners, therefore, he uses his personal experiences to bring this era to life for all generations. He gives readers a detailed, inside look at the flight routines, explains technical matters in simple terms, and wraps it all up in a gripping personal love story. Venture Into the Stratosphere will evoke nostalgia in some while making the future flights of all readers more fascinating and exciting.
