Seconds to Disaster

2012 / Non-fiction / eBook

'Finally, the truth is being told about today's airline business, and it's scary! A powerful, disturbing read about our unfriendly skies that affects all of our lives.'

'If you fly as a passenger or crew member then you MUST read this book.'

'Among the many unsettling revelations about the airline business, this book teaches you how to keep you and your family safe whenever you fly--which airlines to travel with, and which to avoid. Invaluable.'

As with the Air France Flight 447 tragedy, much of the time air crashes are a confluence of events—a cascade of bad luck, bad decisions, inappropriate airline company policy, the failure of aviation regulators, and sometimes insufficient training, or various combinations of all five.

Seconds to Disaster will demonstrate that part of that bad luck is often aided by the airline industry’s own endless and aggressive pursuit of bottom-line profit which contributes to a creeping erosion of safety standards and puts both passenger and crew lives at serious risk.

These revelations are made in the hope that any resulting debate will contribute to making air travel a safer experience for both crew and passengers alike. Seconds to Disaster will not only pose and answer questions as to why accidents happen, but also offer solutions as to how they can be further prevented.

And it will explore a highly contentious issue: what parts do both the airline industry and the worldwide watchdog authorities responsible for governing that industry contribute in playing dice with passenger lives, through negligence and collusion.


“Meade and Ronan pull back the curtain on the airline industry and shine a bright light on the dark corners. Everyone who flies or cares about someone who flies should read this eye-opening account of the current state of commercial air travel. What you don’t see can hurt you.”

—Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, retired airline pilot

Praise for Glenn Meade's other work:

"Meade's research is so extensive yet unobtrusive . . . that it is often easy to forget you're reading fiction and not history. This a completely riveting thriller in the tradition of the Day of the Jackal. A white knuckler!"
—The Washington Post

"Glenn Meade writes scenes as though they were shot from a gun, and the impact as you turn each page is often just as powerful."
—Florida Times
