William Morrow has two books in the works with pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, and the first one will come out late this year.
The publisher, an imprint of HarperCollins, said the first book will include stories of Sullenberger's boyhood, military service and, of course, the experience of landing his US Airways plane in New York's Hudson River on Jan. 15, averting major disaster and saving all 155 passengers. The subject and timing of the second book is not yet known.

In a statement issued by the publisher, family spokesman Alex Clemens said Sullenberger is eager to return to work as a pilot sometime this summer.
Sullenberger lives in the San Francisco Bay area town of Danville, Calif.
