About this title


Come take a flight with Pan Am Captain Bill Travis - from Tennessee farm boy to high school dropout, working in the Detroit car factories, to professional pilot and captain for Pan Am. Hear from the cockpit of a Pan Am Boeing 747 what really goes on behind the scenes: the banter, the problem passengers, the celebrities, the scary moments. This is not a story of how one man got lucky and achieved his dream - Bill had a method - and in this book he shares it with the reader alongside the fascinating story of his life. Much more than just a reminiscing retiree, Captain Bill shares the secrets of his success - a success that continues to this day. Not a man to slow down, Bill followed up his piloting with a career as a professional musician, running his own 17-piece dance orchestra in San Francisco. Now living in Phoenix, Arizona, Bill divides his time between managing his own real estate business and writing. Read his first book, "Pan Am Captain: Aiming High" and be inspired by the journey of Captain Bill Travis. He will motivate you to Aim for High Goals!

About the Author:

Captain Bill Travis was born on a farm in Tennessee. His parents migrated to Detroit to work in the auto factories, and Bill dropped out of school in the 10th grade to work in those factories. After two years he decided to quit the factories and set a goal of getting a white collar job and earn $10,000 per year. A few years later he had realized those goals. He flew for Zantop Air Transport for seven years, and Pan Am for 28 years. After retiring he started his own 17 piece swing band in San Francisco. When he relocated to Phoenix, he sold the band, and started his own real estate brokerage, which he operates today. His next book, targeted for July 2014 completion is on health and fitness. He is training to compete in a bodybuilding contest in July 2014, at the age of 80.
