Many Good Things...

So many new things are on the horizon outside the flight deck window so it's time to touch base with everyone amidst the choas of my own life offline to give some acknowledgment, announcement, and thanks to a few people and things.

Firstly I would like to thank Alex Wood, our Chief Graphics Designer and Flight To Success partner at Aviation Center for creating the most vivid and awesome visuals for The Weekly Triple Trivia Column (Every Tuesday Morning):

He also created the a most awesome book trailor for Our Chief Content Advisor Karlene Petitt's novel "Flight For Control"


One of the things about networking is learning about and meeting the most interesting new people.  I first came across Captain Eric Auxier known by his alias as "CAP'N AUX"  When I visited his website, I was most impressed and amazed by what he has to offer the world.  Having visited Flight to Success a few days ago, I learned that Cap'n Aux came out with a new novel:

" Two young pilots. One bold dream. But if Alaska doesn't beat them, their friendship may. "

I must say, after reading the line above, it has enticed me to put this one on my reading list.  Please take a look at this novel.  I know I will.  We will be featuring Captain Eric on the right side of our website shortly so please stay tuned.


It's all about promoting awesome pilots, awesome authors, and awesome people here at JFD!

Thank you all for being a part of this website and the Flight To Success Network!

"Understanding Air France 447"
by  Bill Palmer


Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

A 26 year old doctor from Ireland, an 11 year old student from the United Kingdom, 29 year old Brazi…

Pure Perfection


One of those most grand moments in life is where we discover and cherish the perfection within the imperfection.

Have a great week everyone.  Take nothing for granted whether its perfect or not.

Flight For Sanity

"While it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took."

Grand Rapids, Michigan
April, 2017

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…
