    Summary: 
    "Flying The Knife Edge is the story of an ordinary man experiencing extraordinary things as a bush pilot in Papua New Guinea in the 1990s. After an untimely exit from the Royal New Zealand Air Force, Matt McLaughlin took a leap into the unknown, travelling to New Guinea to work as a missionary pilot. He soon switched from missionary to mercenary, and over the next three and a half years, as he built up the necessary experience to chase his goal of becoming an airline captain, his life was a rollercoaster ride of adventure, risk, near-misses, and tragedy. Matt lived on the knife edge of bush pilot ops in one of the world's most dangerous flying environments. Along the way he soaked up some fascinating local history: the country's vital role in WWII's Pacific Theatre; the disappearance of aviator Amelia Earhart; the chaos of the Bougainville civil war; the Morobe gold rush of the 1930s." --Publisher.
