HALFWAY TO HEAVEN

Doran Wilson's appointment as Chief of Communications for International Overseas Air Carriers is the chance for him to turn his string of failures into a beginning of a long crawl up but the dirty pool played within a wildeat airline is something that makes him fight harder than he planned. With four airplanes, flights promised and cancelled, and ""troops"" that never get paid, the non-ked line is a madhouse of suspicious company officers, friction and trouble with the CAA. Doubtful of his friend Farmer, the Chief Pilot, Wilson is still committed to him when a Venezuelan deal comes through that gives them an out from CAA threats against sloppy operations and when that is fouled up and the company officers are chasing one plane across the Atlantic, he and Farmer get another try when the plane and the company are wrecked. A luridly lighted commercial airlines story makes its mechanics disturbing for possible passengers to be.
