"An innate part of human nature is to explore, to wonder what's on the other side of that ridge or to see a mountain and climb it. Robert DeLaurentis' book Zen Pilot demonstrates this quest for challenge, adventure and exploration and tells his story of circumnavigating the planet in his Piper Malibu Mirage. His first hand accounting enthusiastically keeps readers excited and challenged to reach for and realize their own dreams."
"I've had the pleasure of meeting Robert DeLaurentis, "Zen Pilot", at aviation events where he has been a speaker. Having followed his solo circumnavigation flight in 2015, I have looked forward to the release of his book Zen Pilot which documents Robert's flying experiences during that voyage. What a great read!
Zen Pilot: Flight of Passion & the Journey Within delivers Robert's amazing journey on so many levels. He is among the very few pilots who have pushed back the fears and mechanical concerns requested to undergo such an involved flying experience. You will learn what personal goals led up to his undertaking of such an 'impossibly big dream', the steps taken to accomplish it, and the hurdles he encountered (and overcame) along the way. The Zen Moments scattered throughout the book are great reminders to us about the power of being zen, especially in moments of stress and fear which are a common passengers when we take flight.
While pilots will eat this story up, I believe anyone who aspires to reach higher and then live to tell it will thoroughly enjoy this 'hero's journey' adventure story that is as real as it can get."
~ Jack Pelton, Chairman of the Board and CEO of the Experimental Aircraft Association and the former CEO of Cessna Aircraft Company
"After reading Zen Pilot I can say I really likeit! It's easy to read and I really like the "Zen Moments". It's agood format because a person can pick it up at any point in the book and beengaged immediately. Both the experiences you write about and the writing of themare huge accomplishments. Good job!"
