Flying low and gradual up during the American heartland, throughout Canada and alongside the famed 1,387-mile Alaska road after which again, the 2 pilots accomplished a 7,000-mile flying trip of discovery.

The Alaska road Flight Log began as a five-part sequence of articles in General Aviation information in 2016. Reader response to the sequence used to be hugely favorable, resulting in a spread of the tales to a full-length e-book. Alaska road Flight Log is entire with targeted maps, an in-depth log, displaying the person legs of the journey and a set of the simplest of greater than 2,000 electronic pictures taken through the flying trip. "The journey to Alaska did now not disappoint in anyway," Walker writes. "It is one of these final trips for aviators since it takes so much of them thoroughly out in their cozy environments, now not for only a four-hour stint or for 4 days, yet for weeks or longer. We have been within the air seventy four hours, flying greater than 7,000 miles. It used to be most likely the longest flying journey i'm going to ever adopt and maybe the simplest i'll ever fly, even though i am hoping there's even greater to come."
