Book Description

This book contains first hand stories of how Bill Travis used Visualization and Goal Setting techniques to go from being a high school dropout working in the Detroit automobile factories to realizing the dream of becoming a successful airline pilot for Pan Am, and how he used the techniques to improve his flying skills.
Using his techniques, you can also realize your dream.

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.

Take a flight with 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. 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.

Through positive thinking, visualization, goal setting, and sheer hard work, Bill literally aimed for the skies, and as a result spent 35 years flying all over the world with the world’s most glamorous airline.

Bill said you can equate your subconscious mind to an airliners’ “Flight Management System”. That is the navigation system where the pilot inputs the destination, and the FMS guides the airplane on the path to the destination.

Your subconscious mind works in the same manner. You just have to program it properly.
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, then founded his own real estate brokerage company, Captain Bill Realty, in Gilbert AZ.

His next goal is to compete in a bodybuilding Physique Division contest in 2014, at the age of 80. Then he plans to become a Motivational Speaker to help others become more productive and achieve their dreams.

You can achieve your goals too. As Captain Bill explains, “You must keep “Aiming High.”

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 books in 1 May 29, 2014
By Ann W.
I read any and every book written by my fellow Pan American colleagues, but this one is inspirational as well as informative. Captain Bill's goal-setting methodology that insured his success can be utilized by anyone who aspires to make their lives better for themselves and their families. There is no greater proof that it worked for Bill than attaining the rank of Captain at the world's greatest airline. As he relates his story, a man you can admire, who is witty, charming and talented, shines through.
