~ The Adventures of Pilot Pete teach kids the value of passion, dedication and hard work ~

I want to connect and inspire kids to follow their passions and dreams. The book has a powerful message for children: that they can really accomplish whatever they think about it. “

– Author and candidate for ABC’s hit show The Bachelor

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 / – Peter Weber has loved airplanes ever since his father, a pilot for United Airlines, showed him the inside of a cockpit when Peter was only five years old.

After more than 20 years of passion for the skies and hard work in college, flight school and pilot training, Peter has achieved his dream of becoming a commercial airline pilot.

He shared his passion for aviation as The Bachelor on the hit ABC show, which became known as Pilot Pete, but he also wanted to connect and inspire kids to follow their passions and dreams. .

He did so in The Adventures of Pilot Pete, a colorful and beautifully illustrated 32-page hardcover aimed at ages 3-12. Copies of the first edition are now available for pre-order at:

The book follows the story of Peter’s journey to becoming a pilot and brings his emotion to life as readers see it:

• That moment that changed her life when her father showed her an airplane cockpit
• Peter studies aviation late at night
• Peter completes flight school and training
• Achieving his lifelong dream: a job in a major airline
• And touching family scenes that come full circle in the story

Peter worked on the book, its beginnings as an author, for almost a year, writing its text and overseeing its illustration and design. In fact, his recent hire by United Airlines – the same airline his father flew for – precipitated a change in the book cover and interior artwork to reflect his pride in flying for the airline.

“I couldn’t be prouder of The Adventures of Pilot Pete,” said Peter. “It’s full of beautiful details and has a powerful message for kids: that they can really accomplish whatever they want.”

The book, edited by Blue balloons books, a children’s book print from Ballast books, will be available in a large version in October. Pre-orders of signed and personalized copies are now accepted on A portion of each book sale will support Pilots for Kids, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping hospitalized children.
