            A Patriot's Calling: My Life as an F-16 Fighter Pilot
              

            A Patriot's Calling: My Life as an F-16 Fighter Pilot (EPUB ebook)

            By Rooney, Lt Colonel Dan

            A decorated fighter pilot and PGA professional tells the story of his life and service-to both his nation and others-in this remarkable memoir that is a stirring record of faith, patriotism, family, philanthropy, and golf.What does it mean to be a patriot? For Oklahoma native Dan... Rooney, it is someone who not only puts his life on the line for country, but who opens his heart and mind and seeks to build a life that embodies the purest and most concentrated essence of himself. For many, Rooney is the model of a patriot: as an Air Force pilot who deployed to Iraq, serving three tours of duty; as a professional golfer who established a nonprofit foundation awarding thousands of scholarships to the children of fallen and disabled veterans; as the father of five daughters; as a man of faith, whose copilot, both in the skies and on the ground, has always been God. A Patriot's Calling is his autobiographical journey through some of the most character-defining moments of his awe-inducing life and career. "On my third tour of duty in Iraq as F -16 fighter pilot, I felt a powerful calling from God to share the miraculous fusion of people and experiences uniquely placed along my journey. During my reflection, I began to understand how the forces of synchronicity had shaped my life. Synchronicity, or, as I like to call it, 'chance with a purpose,' is all around us. These encounters with God's messengers are the sign-posts along the road of life guiding us toward our essence." A Patriot's Calling illuminates Rooney's true essence-and offers guidance and inspiration for us all. A Patriot'sCalling includes 40 photos and 3 maps.

            Women in Aviation (EPUB ebook)

            By Hale, Julian

            Amy Johnson and Amelia Earhart may be the most famous trailblazing women within the world of early aviation, but there were many others. From the Wright brothers' sister Katherine, who was awarded the Legion d'honneur, to Mary, Lady Heath, the first woman to pilot a light aircraf...t from South Africa to England, the history of aviation is peppered with pioneering women who broke down the barriers of this male-dominated field. This is the story of those female aviators: not only the widely celebrated records of Johnson and Earhart, but also the now lesser-known exploits of those such as Mary, Lady Bailey, who was awarded an OBE in 1930. This essential guide also covers the new opportunities carved out for women during the Second World War, the age of space flight and women's ongoing work in aviation in the modern age of equality.

            Many a Close Run Thing (EPUB ebook)

            By Enright, Tom

            "Planes were rarely seen above the small Central Otago sheep-farming town of Ranfurly in the 1940s. Yet as a young boy, Tom Enright had a fascination with the skies that quickly developed into a longing to become a pilot. He joined the RNZAF as an engineer in 1951, and was sent t...o England at just 16 to attend the revered Royal Air Force college in Cranwell. Returning to New Zealand to join the Vampire fighter squadron in Ohakea, Tom became a famed member of the RNZAF aerobatic team. Later he became a flying commander at Wigram air base, before captaining a Sunderland flying boat to isolated communities in the vast South Pacific, often to the upper limits of the plane's endurance. From the near-catastrophic opening of Wellington airport to flying Boeing 747s into the world's biggest airports, this is Tom Enright's story of the mishaps, misadventures and high-altitude drama of a 45-year flying career"--Back cover.
