Publisher's Summary

"A lifelong love of airplanes and flying, but a deep-seated belief that I had missed the education I would need, was not wealthy enough to proceed, and perhaps not physically perfect enough, left me in awe of those who could walk that walk."These thoughts disappeared in an instant one day when I saw a sign that said, 'Learn to Fly'. My dream came to life, and I grabbed it with all my life forces. I lived for ground school, every aviation manual I could find, for every flight lesson, for every aviation conversation. And I succeeded far beyond my dreams."
