Publisher's Summary

Former Flying Magazine and EAA Sport Aviation editor Lane Wallace has flown plenty of unique flights, from the Swiss Alps to Key West, from a Piper Cub to a U-2 spy plane. In this fascinating book, she recounts her 10 best - in the process, she reminds all pilots why we fly. Written with Lane's trademark style and sense of wonder about the world she experiences and explores, and filled with insight about the emotions and life lessons flying evokes, it's ideal for both pilots and non-pilots.

This new edition includes new material exclusive to the audiobook, including how these 10 flights happened and some of the people who made them possible. Narrated by Lane Wallace herself, who shares her inimitable love for the people and places of aviation.

Why do we fly

Lane is an awesome author! She is the first writer to capture the magic of flying. Read this book and discover, or rediscover, the joy, mystery and adventure that is flying. Even if you don't fly, you'll see how really living and pursuing your dreams makes all the difference is a life well lived.

Thank you Lane for reminding me why I fly.
