When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.' -Leonardo DaVinci Everyone's been on an airplane. Sure. But the fact is, most people have never been flying. Author Ken Ibold has flown dozens of types of general aviation airplanes and has more than twenty-five years of experience in the field of general aviation. Defying Gravity: A look at life from a higher plane is a collection of essays written by a pilot, for pilots, but also for anyone who has dared cast an eye skyward at the drone of an overhead propeller. This is a journey into the pilot's mind. It decodes some of the secret handshakes, examines how pilots think as they seemingly defy gravity, and helps define the place in the world where private aviation lives.
