Flight To Success
Be The Captain Of Your Life

Inspiration, motivation and lessons learned... 

Flight to Success is my journey through eight airlines, seven type ratings, two master’s degrees, and raising a family. Intertwined with my stories are those of others who share their successes, failures, losses, fears, hopes and dreams. My gift is to share these lessons with you. A key aspect of being a good pilot is compounding experience, learning how to deal with life challenges, and to learning from others as well as our own experiences. The best flight tips I’ve received have come from hangar talk, and from people I've met along the way.
 


This inspirational, motivational book will take you on a journey of life, to assist you with yours. How do people achieve success? Why don't they quit?  How do they find courage, stamina, and strength to persevere during the most challenging times? Where do they find the time to do it all? The answers to these questions and many more will be answered.

What drives people to phenomenal success? The secret correlates with many aspects of flight. If you apply these tips to your everyday life there will be nothing you cannot accomplish. Life is about choice. We can't always control what happens to us in life, but we can decide what those events mean. The choice now, is to open your mind and heart, and begin to dream.

Be prepared to takeoff for the flight of your life, and enjoy the journey.

  4. Hi! I've read you blog awhile now. I'm a fifth grade teacher, looking at 40 this year. I've taken flying lessons and got to my cross country solo moment. Then I had to stop flying due to money. I've always wanted to be in aviation and at my age I'm realizing flying May not be where due to time, reality of life, and my age. If I could I'd quit work, spend the money, and fly until I could do it daily and get paid. But with a kiddo, mortgage, and life I can't do that. Any tips, suggestions, or guidance to get into aviation in any form would be great. I'll still fly for fun when I can, but I just want to work in the aviation field that I am so passionate about. rachelrenee75@gmail.com

    1. Rachel, Looking at 40 is awesome when you are looking at 53!. I was hired at Northwest Airlines at 35 and was in the middle of the age group in my class. Half were older! And... we are having a pilot shortage and need pilots. Heading to the the gym and an early FAA physical, but will email you when I get home! This is not an unrealistic event. And... you should read Flight To Success and read about my pilot Mom... it's possible!!! And besides...we need more fun aviators too! Thanks for the comment.

  8. Good luck with your book, Karlene. If you ever give up on the Amazon program that keeps you from putting it on Nook, let me know.

    1. Thanks David, I think there were 7 sales on Nook to 500 on Kindle, so the Amazon just makes more sense. But that's why I print it too. And... Flight to Success, you might want the paper copy anyway, so you can write notes in it. :) Thanks for the comment!

I had delightful time when I have read your book and an amazing aspect from your journey.Thanks for sharing your precious experience with us. Now, I just started to read "Flight for Control" i am pretty sure I will also enjoy that book. I feel like having great energy in progress of my flight training by a living success as yourself.
