Praise for LIFE INSIDE THE DEAD MAN’S CURVE

Amazon #1 Best Seller in Aviation Biographies

“This project was unbelievably good! It was suspenseful, supremely well written, kept me turning the pages till the very end. I can’t say enough good things about it!
CHRISTY PHILLIPPE, The Versatile Pen

“Kevin’s work is a warm, compassionate story of helicopters in rescue missions. I only wish my father could have read it, as it brought Father’s passion for the helicopter as an instrument for saving lives into reality. The author spent thirty-five years and logged more than eleven thousand hours of flight time as a naval aviator and public-safety helicopter pilot. Kevin’s is an admirable story of a life well lived.
IGOR SIKORSKY, Jr., Noted Aviation Historian and son of the man who invented the modern helicopter

“A delightful, informative homage to a life of flight. … Although the prose is consistently lighthearted and even humorous, it also seriously chronicles the palpable sense of risk in McDonald’s profession.
