Translated, it describes the prefect conditions to be a fighter pilot, when steel blue skies invite them to spread their wings like a supersonic eagle. Fighter pilots cherish CAVU days because they know tomorrow can bring challenging conditions. Life is no different. From the outside, it looked like the American dream. Lt Colonel Dan "Noonan" Rooney was an F-16 fighter pilot, PGA golf professional, married to his college sweetheart and father of five daughters. His position in life should've been a blessing. But a near tragic mishap while piloting his F-16 triggered an ominous life storm that altered his trajectory and filled him with self-doubt. A jet takes-off into the wind because it requires resistance over its wings to fly. Embracing this outlook, Lt Col Rooney's attitude toward the resistance in his life changed from that of resentment to one of humble introspection. It was here where CAVU was born. In Fly Into the Wind, Lt Col Rooney shares a code of living that combines powerful tenets and the ultimate belief in God help you discover and seize your best life. Hyper-focused on the precise areas that are immediately under your control, CAVU is a disciplined approach to each day that will help you re-shape, motivate, prioritize and ultimately thrive. In the time-honored spirit of the fighter pilot. Rooney has broken down CAVU into thirteen unique lines of effort (LOE), with each LOE building upon the next to provide a positive vector toward a new way of living. Along this enlightened path, readers will discover a renewed belief in themselves and the art of the possible. Part spiritual guide and part call-to-action, Fly Into the Wind combines Lt Colonel Rooney's Air Force fighter pilot stories with his discovery of faith and purpose in order to help each reader achieve CAVU. In this world of identity politics, PC police, misplaced morals, and external noise, Rooney's book will show how all of us are connected by God in more ways than we realize, and that the path to fulfillment begins with changing ourselves in order to better each other"-- Provided by publisher.
