An autobiography of a young, impertinent FAA controller (Danny Mortensen) in the seventies culminating in the PATCO strike of 1981, and his subsequent adventures and exploits in aviation through the years. An entrepreneur, educator, author, radio talk show host, motivational speaker, master of ceremonies, aircraft builder, risk-taker, and air race pilot, world record holder, corporate pilot and airline instructor are just some of his unique accomplishments.
Wiith his involvement with Bill Phelps' Airline Ground Schools as an instructor and later as president, Danny lead a premier cadre of retired airline captains responsible for worldwide training of more than 58,000 pilots and aircraft dispatchers. His innovations in aviation education and training materials are admired by many.
He earned the moniker, Mr. Lucky, after walking away from a 200 mph crash at the Natl. Championship Air Races in Reno in 1983. His miraculous survival is attributed to the structural integrity of his Burt Rutan-designed AMSOIL Racer and the stronger-than-steel composite materials used in its construction. In 1990, he won the Gold in Reno and retired from pylon air racing after 15 years of competition. Two of his aircraft now hang in museums. Now retired, Danny reflects on his challenges, accomplishments, and some funny stories along the way. Live your dream! Autographed.
