In this episode of the Leadership in Aviation Podcast, René Banglesdorf is joined by Edgar® Award-nominated Author and Pilot for 44 years, Kam Majd.  His latest novel “High Wire” is a suspenseful, thrilling story of a pilot’s race against time to save the passengers aboard a plane infected with a madman’s computer virus

Kam chats with Rene about his new book, his history in aviation and his leadership in the cockpit for close to 50 years. He goes into detail about what made him write "High Wire" and why he chose a woman as the protagonist (lead).
