    One thought on “Inside the President's Helicopter: Reflections of a White House Senior Pilot”

    1. In August, 1974, I was busy watching over an active toddler and pregnant with our second child. The preceding twelve years had been chaotic - for me personally and for our country. Frustrated, angry, confused and scared, I was no different than anyone else. I remember sitting on the couch, dry-mouthed, watching the first family troop out to a helicopter on the White House lawn. The President's wife and daughters were stoic, but I knew they'd been crying and would cry again. Nixon paused in the d [...]

    2. Loved this one. So much presidential history! Some of which I know, a lot of which I did not know. The author's writing style made this an enjoyable read.

    3. The author, Gene Boyer, retired from the Army as a Lt. Col. (His service as a White House pilot actually limited his promotion potential.) He led an amazing life -- the people he met, the places he went, the amazing experiences. Just one example, while working in Venezuela he saw Sputnik fall to earth in flames. A number of near misses with death. Many famous people.Still, the book is an easy interesting read rather than a simple catalog of his life. He's a man I would like to know and his integ [...]

    4. This book is truly a time machine and you really get a sense of what this guy experienced as the president's helicopter pilot. He served under Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and finally before retiring Gerald Ford but he did not complete a full presidential term with Gerald Ford he retired before the end of forts term.He starts out with a lot of background about himself and gives you a literal birds eye view of Vietnam and won a graphic and horrendous time this was for our nation. In [...]

    5. Fascinating history. There are recounts about President Johnson that made me laugh out loud: When the air conditioning on the helicopter wasn't functioning, LBJ looks for an axe to break out a window; LBJ hires seven secretaries least 2 of them could type; trips to the LBJ ranch 'under the radar'.

    6. Major Boyer details some experiences with the Presidents that he was privileged to transport. Very insightful. But he does jump back and forth alittle and gives too much detail on his family life that doesn't enhance the story. Overall worth reading!

    7. Insightful sharing of the life of the preident's pilot. Full of opinions formed at duty and well thought out. What I really wanted was his 'slant' on the presidents and it was there as hoped.
