Lyle P. – "Grounded"

“Lyle P. – Grounded.” Lyle P. is the author of “Grounded” in the Personal Stories section of the Big Book, 4th Edition. He and two other men were the first airline pilots ever arrested for flying while under the influence. After losing FAA licenses and serving time in prison, his recovery in AA helped him make a miraculous comeback (1:06:09). For more, see “Grounded,” in “Big Book Q&A,” p. 522.
