Flying Upside Down means, literally, flying a plane upside down aerobatically. It also means turning fear upside down by engaging and controlling it rather than succumbing to it and letting it control your life. As a kid, the author wanted to fly. But a terrible accident made him deathly afraid of heights, so much so that he couldn’t even ride in an elevator, let alone fly in a plane. Later in life, he overcame this dysfunctional mindset by turning the fear upside down and becoming a pilot.

This book relates the author’s thrills, chills, ups and downs (literally), and his successes and screw-ups as he evolves into an experienced flyer who tests the limits of himself and his aircraft in some of the most challenging planes and situations imaginable – from flying a barely airworthy Cessna over the Pacific waters in Guam, aerobatics, parachuting, and some of the toughest mountain flying in the Colorado Rockies.

Throughout the book, there are many useful lessons the author learned through his flying adventures that are instructive for pilots and non-pilots alike in dealing with life’s challenges, overcoming fear and building self esteem and confidence… for life!
