October 11th, 2008


Jimmy Buffett was the answer to one of the ‘Test Pilot’ questions in the October issue of AOPA Pilot magazine, the magazine of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Here was the question and answer:

Question 7. From reader Charles Baumann: Less than 10 authors have ever had their books appear on The New York Times bestseller lists for both fiction and nonfiction. Which of these authors is well known as a pilot?

Answer – Jimmy Buffett for his novels, Where is Joe Merchant? (1992) and A Salty Piece of Land (2004). His book A Pirate Looks at Fifty made the nonfiction list in 1998.
