Robert Novell Books

Robert has been involved in commercial aviation since 1978 and has seen all of the ups and downs associated with deregulation, the oil crisis, the economic swings in the economy, and has learned that job security in aviation is a myth—even in the best of times. Although Robert was successfully employed all of his career and has flown numerous corporate aircraft and heavy lift freighters, including the B-747 200/300, he has had many friends leave the industry because of low wages,

lack of job security, and hollow promises made by management; however, most of us have experienced the ups and downs of life but aviation seems to be burdened with more problems than most professions. A personal comment from Robert: “I have been successful overall; however, it is time for me to step away from airplanes and pursue other interests. I am sure there will be days that I will miss the challenge but my only true regret will be not having flown the round-engine DC-3 and the B-707. So, now it is time for me to focus on what is wrong with aviation and the professionals in the industry who deserve better that what is being offered.” All Aviators are “Gatekeepers of the Third Dimension” so protect yourself and all who will follow in your footsteps. Enjoy the book and stop by the “Third Dimension Blog” http://www.robertnovell.com/blog/ and learn more about the roots of aviation.

Synopsis

Believe in Yourself. Love, Happiness, and Success are Waiting!
This is a simple book written in everyday language, and I used as few words as possible so as not to distract from the value of the words I did use. I am not trained in the science of Psychology, nor do I aspire to be a talk show host who solves everyone’s troubles in one hour. So, what makes me qualified to write a book about happiness and other related topics? Let me explain.

I refer to this book as my pocket guide to life and although I am a professional pilot, trained in aeronautical sciences, I have spent my entire life working with crewmembers, passengers, and people in an environment that brings out the best, and the worst, in people. It has been said that pilots are paid for those few moments of absolute terror when everything goes wrong in the airplane, and this is true to a degree, but the real truth is that as the Captain your job is to deal with people and keep things moving on schedule. I have spent a lot of time in airport terminals just watching people, listening to opinions, dealing with passengers anxiety, and as a result of that experience, gained over forty years, I have been able to identify common threads associated with most problems.

Use my book as a reference in your daily life, digest the main points of each chapter, and then change your life based on your needs, and your personality. You are a winner, you are in control of the outcome of each day of your life, and you are never too old to change. You can’t dream your life away so find your passion in life and then, and only then, will you understand the meaning of life, love and, commitment. Remember, today is yesterday’s tomorrow.

Synopsis

In volume one of Robert Novell’s short stories on the magic of aviation, he will introduce you to but a few of the characters he has flown with over the years in an effort to expose the common threads they share in their free spirited approach to life and aviation.

“A free spirit is one who is inclined to explore life and taste new experiences that exemplify, and hold true, to their personal convictions as opposed to allowing the masses to influence their direction and thinking; however, above all else the free spirited individual is one who thinks freely and has the courage to hear that inner voice and follow the road less traveled without regret or intimidation.”

Is this magic, this freedom, that we earth bound bipeds associate with flight actually the release of the free spirit in all of us? I believe that true freedom is magic and therefore this release of all earth bound pressures as you enter the realm of endless blue skies in your winged craft is a free spirit experience shared, and understood, by only a few but wished for by many. Are there rules—yes? Are there limitations—yes; however, let’s push aside the structured environment, the history of trial and error, and the obvious risk while we explore the magic of flight in its purest form.
