Flying with God always at my side

Airline Captain Bill Foster answers kids’ questions about flying.

Did you always want to be a pilot?

I always wanted to fly, but I never dreamed of becoming a professional pilot. Five years after graduating from university and working as a salesman, I had finally saved up the money to pay for flight school. At about the same time a friend of mine gave me the book called The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe. It’s a story of the test pilots who became the first astronauts. That book really inspired me.
