Publisher's Summary

At age 19, pilot Dale Black miraculously survived an airplane crash that killed the other two pilots on board. Hovering between life and death for three days, he had a breathtaking experience of heaven. Against all odds and with insurmountable injuries, Capt. Black recovered from his injuries and returned to fly airplanes as a professional pilot, airline pilot instructor, and jet flight examiner. For 40 years he kept the story to himself at the urging of his grandfather to "live" his experience rather than talk about it.

The flight to heaven changed Dale's life, and now he allows it to be told in hopes of encouraging others with this wondrous experience.

Great Story of Recovery and Faith

Dale Black's story of his recovery from a terrible airplane crash is in itself inspirational. He fights through the rehabilitation and the experts telling him a full recovery is not possible.

Dale fully believes he went to heaven, and credits his Christian faith for getting him through. Dale narrates the story himself, and, although he is not a great narrator, his sincerity absolutely comes through. I would have preferred if the book had been organized differently (it bounces back and forth between events happening years later and the story of the crash and his recovery), but that's simply a matter of preference. Overall, it is a fascinating and inspirational book.

Listeners should be aware that this book is very evangelical. If that is not your cup of tea, this book is not for you.

Disappointing

What would have made Flight to Heaven better?

More about heaven

What was most disappointing about Dale Black’s story?

His story became repetitive and boring. Seemed he was bragging about his accomplishments and faith.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

OK

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

NO,,,,,some sharing of the faith and miracles would have been good, But blow by blow descriptions of his life became very boring.

Any additional comments?

Would not recommend.......I put it on fast speed and tried to get some of the good nuggets and there were some, but came close to giving up completely.

Very good book.

Where does Flight to Heaven rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The book is read by the author. I thought it was easy to follow along and he kept your interest.

What did you like best about this story?

He described what heaven was like and how he had changed after the crash.

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The only survivor of a horrific plane crash, Dale was hovering between life and death when he had a wondrous experience of heaven. What he saw, what he heard, and what he learned there continues to ripple through his life and touch others.<br/><br/>Against all odds, Dale miraculously recovered from his injuries and learned to fly again.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book to others. A remarkable story.

Very inspirational, emotional and humbling

I must be honest .. I was looking for a book about heaven, but what I found in this book is so much more. Yes, he talks about heaven almost in the middle of the book. but thats a very small part of the story. The fact that God used the crash to change his and many more lives is the real story. Dale Black inspired me to have the conversation with others about the state of their souls. I loved this book and having the author read the book was perfect. The emotion in his voice were so real. You will not be dissapointed with this book.

A must read for all religions

A very good and well written story line. As a Christian we have our own vision of Heaven. Mr. Black gives us a beautiful glimps of the after life and Heaven. I did enjoy hearing the author reading the book. I have been telling everyone that I care about to read or listen to the book.

Story strays from flight path...

Any additional comments?

I'm sorry, I just found this story to be rambling. I tried to stick with it because I wanted to hear about the author's trip to heaven, but he took so long to get to it and took so many side trips, I gave up.

Very incredible story!!!! Do NOT miss out!!!

Dale did the impossible; he survived an unsurvivable plane crash, and went to heaven, and came back and recieved healing after healing from God. If you were ever wondering if heaven is real, if Jesus is real, and if he can protect and heal you; then you need to hear this and many more near death experience stories. Heaven is real, God is real, Jesus is real, Angels are real, and we are so fortunate to have them all. Amen for the people like Dale Black who verified it all for us and have the courage to share their story with us. I feel so very loved and blessed by God and all of his GRACE. See you at the gates. Thank you Lord, Amen!

Inspiring and heartfelt

As a pilot myself I was curious about the plane crash as well as the journey to heaven, both curiosities were satisfied. A very touching story about a teenager's battles with his injuries and his faith; brought a tear to my eye a couple of times and inspired me to reach for the dusty bible next to my bed. Listen to this even if you don't consider yourself to believe in Jesus.

Great testimony!

Dale Black whom the book is based on is the narrator. I loved listening to his often emotional, very emotional voice. A lot of technical jargon but necessary and not over the top. His dedication to spreading the gospel is so profound and lovely but not pushy. He reveals a God that loves us immeasurably no matter what your colour, race, belief, background whatever is.
