Amazon Best Selling author Chip Bearden, a soaring pilot since the ’60s–before he could legally drink, drive, vote, or…you know. Guided by his flight instructor/coach/wingman father, Chip’s ascent in the soaring world hit turbulence with a tragic crash. This book charts his journey before and after; balancing competing demands of the skies, career, and family; clocking 3,000 flight hours; overcoming challenges and setbacks; delving into the allure that draws pilots, climbers, auto racers, and others not despite but because of the risks they face.
