Flying Naked (and Flying Naked 2: The Hunt for Vilcabamba's Gold) are the latest books in Michael Bleriot's Emerald World series of aviation adventures.  Bleriot is a military and civilian pilot who flew in Central and South America at the height of the drug wars.  His stories -- based on real adventures -- are a glimpse into what flying should be:  bold, uncontrolled, and sometimes unclothed!

Meet Author Michael Bleriot

Can you fly?" I asked.

The old man misunderstood me.

"Don't worry about me, young man," he said.  "Don't think about how long it's been since I've flown.  Think how long it's been since I've crashed!  45 years - you should hope to beat that record.  Now GET OUT OF MY SEAT!
