I had received the book "Wings of Discovery" as a gift from my Mother. Only my family and close friends knew about my intense fear of flying phobia. I have tried many things to overcome my fear, but nothing seemed to do the trick. I started to read "Wings of Discovery" with a half opened mind. I set it in my head that this book would not help me, but I would at least try. I had no idea just how big of an impact this book would have on my life. Once I started to read it however, I simply could not put it down. This 130 page paperback book by Captain Stacey L. Chance fascinated me to no end. It was a non stop journey of how Mark Thomas confronts and conquers his fear of flying. It is a fictional story, however there are many questions that fearful fliers have, that are answered factually. Captain Stacey L. Chance presents us with a quite entertaining and at times humorous story that truly helps people who have this dreadful fear. When I completed the book, I stared off in the distance and actually pictured myself flying my own plane. Now that is something that I would have NEVER EVER imagined myself doing before. I will definitely recommend this book to anyone who has the same fear as me. I will read this book from time to time, but I will also read it again before I board my next flight, and take it with me on the plane. Not only was this book a gift from my Mother, but it was a gift from Captain Stacey. Thank you for giving me a gift that will last a lifetime.
After 15 years of NOT flying it came to the point that I really had to fight this fear. In preparation for my vacation and flights I dreaded taking -- I found the fearofflying.com website and this book that the Airline Captain Stacey Chance had written. I bought the book online - and had to wait a few days for it to be in stock - but it is really worth it! This book is very easy to read, the main character is very much like all of us who have developed a real fear of flying. His transformation from a white knuckle flyer to someone who understands and loves to fly is amazing. I read part of this book before I left for my trip and I saved the rest for the flight. It was very reassuring read and a great distraction. I am keeping my book in a safe place so that it's handy again when I take my next flight! Happy reading....Happy Flying to All! :)
This little book is packed with information about flying, but what I enjoyed most were the inspiring descriptions of the magic of flight and the triumph of the ordinary man who pushes past his fears to celebrate life itself. The author's passion for flight is both evident and contagious!
Before reading this book I REALLY HATED TO FLY! Now, at least, I have some answers to why a plane makes certain noises or moves a certain way. I am still afraid to fly, but I will feel less fearful of flying 'next time' I am in an airplane. This book provides a different perspective of being in the air than just 'fasten your seatbelts.' I appreciate the additional knowledge!! Thank You, Captain Chance (what a name for a pilot).
