More About the Author
He served from 1961 until 1965 with the 9th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Spangdahlem Air Base in Germany flying the F-100 and F-105. In addition to flying, he did accident investigation and developed a safety device for the F-100.
While in Germany, Captain Tom raced a Lola Mk5 Formula 3 at the Nurburgring, Zolder, Zandvordt, and Rouen. When returning to the U.S., he converted the car to SCCA Formula C specifications, and won a U.S. National Championship in 1965.
From 1965 until 1986, he flew DC-8s, 707s, and 747s internationally with Pan Am. From 1986 until 1996, he flew 747s, 757s and 767s at United Airlines.
The first fear of flying program was started at Pan Am by Captain Truman "Slim" Cummings. Captain Tom worked with him on that program until founding SOAR in 1982 to develop more effective methods for dealing with flight problems. This led to graduate school at Fordham University where he earned a Masters Degree with top honors, and several years of postgraduate study at the Gestalt Center Of Long Island, the New York Training Institute For Neurolinguistic Programming, and The Masterson Institute. He was licensed as a therapist in 1990.

SOAR not only has me flying with out any fear - I actually look forward to flying and am completely relaxed. But (as the commercials say) there is more. I found that the principles used in the videos and the book also are applicable to other aspects of my life. I have also SOARED in my profession - in a corporate world. I have been promoted twice and am considered calm under pressure. I learned not to just react, but to think things through, investigate in my mind before speaking, ask questions, and that has proven to be helpful in all walks of my life.
So - Tom Bunn has not only helped get me back in the air - he has helped me to reach more of my full potential. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a fear of flying AND to anyone who wants to apply the same principles to other aspects of there life. Thank you Tom!!
