New Highly Anticipated Book Promises to Help Leaders Develop Greater Control for More Effective Leadership

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2021 / -- Ignite Press announced the release of Dark Cockpit: How to Communicate, Lead, and Be in Control at All Times, Like an Airline Captain by Capt. Emil Dobrovolschi and Octavian Pantiş.

The book is available on Amazon at

Dark Cockpit offers a wealth of practical ways and lessons to help anyone know how to navigate through turbulent times with a cool head.

“Over the years, I had the privilege of hearing many stories from Emil’s vast experience as an airline captain and a flight instructor,” says Octavian. “It dawned on me as a Leadership Consultant that quite a few of those stories hold valuable insights that could be useful to anyone, such as how to communicate effectively, lead responsibly, and be in control at all times. This control is essential, especially in stressful situations. This book is an effort to share some of these lessons with you, written through Emil’s voice, but with practical applications that any leader will be able to appreciate and apply to their own ‘Cockpit.’”

To celebrate the launch of the book, the Kindle version of the book will be on sale for 99 cents for a limited time.

Emil Dobrovolschi is a pilot, a pilot instructor, and a pilot examiner. He started at Tarom – Romanian Air Transport – in 1994 and has moved up through all the professional ranks: co-pilot on Antonov 24; captain and pilot instructor on ATR 42/72; captain, pilot instructor, and pilot examiner on Airbus A320 and A310; and test pilot and commander of the special flights for the Romanian President and government officials.

In 2001, he became a Type Rating Instructor – codename for instructor of pilots – and since then the pilots he has trained have become captains for at least 12 airlines around the world. He is also a certified Type Rating Examiner by EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency), which gives him the authority to decide whether pilots continue to fly or are suspended from flying for a certain period. He also has vast management experience, having served in different operational and corporate leadership positions inside Tarom, the most important being that of Vice President and Director of Flight Operations.

Emil is an inspiring speaker, invited frequently to address corporate events of different sizes, where he inspires people to higher levels of commitment and professionalism and teaches valuable communication, leadership, and risk management principles. He is also a passionate biker, riding with his wife all over Europe on their Harley Davidson as often as they can.
