F-16 fighter pilot, American hero, Folds of Honor founder, and family man Dan Rooney delivers a code for living - an inspirational call to action to help ordinary people ascend to their highest level in life.

CAVU is an Air Force acronym that stands for "ceiling and visibility unrestricted." It describes the perfect conditions for flying a fighter jet, when steel-blue skies invite pilots to spread their wings like supersonic eagles. Fighter pilots cherish CAVU days because they know tomorrow can bring challenging conditions. Life is no different.

From the outside, it looked like the American dream: Lieutenant Colonel Dan "Noonan" Rooney was an F-16 fighter pilot, PGA Professional, husband to his college sweetheart, and father of five daughters. His position in life should have been a blessing. But a near-tragic mishap while piloting his F-16 triggered an ominous life storm that altered his trajectory and filled him with self-doubt.

A jet takes off into the wind because it requires resistance over its wings to fly. Embracing this outlook, Lt. Colonel Rooney's attitude toward the resistance in his life changed from resentment to humble introspection. It was then that he began to apply CAVU to his personal life.

In Fly Into the Wind, he shares a code of living that combines powerful tenets and the ultimate belief in God to help you discover and seize your best life. Hyper-focused on the precise areas that are immediately under your control, CAVU is a disciplined approach to each day that will help you reshape, motivate, prioritize, and ultimately thrive - in the time-honored spirit of the fighter pilot. Rooney has broken down CAVU into 10 unique lines of effort (LOE), with each LOE building upon the previous one to provide a positive vector toward a new way of living. Along this enlightened path, listeners will discover a renewed belief in themselves and the art of the possible.

Part spiritual guide and part call to action, Fly into the Wind combines Lt. Colonel Rooney's Air Force fighter pilot stories with his discovery of faith and purpose in order to help each listener achieve CAVU. In this world of identity politics, PC police, misplaced morals, and external noise, Rooney's book will show how all of us are connected by God in more ways than we realize, and that the path to fulfillment begins with changing ourselves in order to better one another.
