During his 33-year career as a commercial pilot, Rossco, originally from Waikerie in South Australia, clocked up 18,000 hours, the equivalent of 7.7 million kilometres or 165 times around the world.

Along the way he picked up a story or two, from crash landings and dodgy operators, to mongrel hunderstorms and celebrity passengers. Ross has collected these in his newly released memoir, Tiny Office – Great Views.

With tongue firmly in cheek, Ross charts the course of Australia’s up-and-down commercial aviation industry from the best seat in the house. He is sacked one day and hired the next, battling bureaucracy here and lightening there. He pilots just about everything with wings and finds himself in some of the dustiest, most forgotten corners of Australia.

But the views from his office make it all worthwhile. From the camps at the mines to the high-rises of Maroochydore, Ross sees it all. He regularly witnesses natural phenomena such as roll clouds, volcanic pipes and ancient creeks, as well as spectacular cloud formations, sunsets and sunrises. Tiny Office – Great Views is interspersed with Ross’s poems and photographs from the cockpit recalling the more poignant moments.

Told in a straight-forward, easygoing manner, Tiny Office – Great Views is everything you could wish to know about the commercial aviation industry in Australia – and possibly a few things you’ll wish you didn’t know! Aviation is an interesting topic to people of all ilk, and Rossco’s take on it makes for fascinating reading.
