"Dean Rush is an angel without wings and one of the finest mentors in America. He has packed five lifetimes into one: family man, fighter pilot, aviation entrepreneur, aviation executive and pastor. He is my friend and co-worker. I get to enjoy his grace, wisdom and common sense every day. And now, you do too!"
-- Robert Emmitt, pastor, Community Bible Church, San Antonio, Texas
"This is a must read. Dean's description of his life, and lessons learned, is not only captivating, but will provide the proper motivation for anyone going through any type crisis! I only wish I had read this book nine years ago."
-- Bobby Hillin, NASCAR driver and business owner
"Dean Rush is a wonderfully wise and skillfully competent leader and pilot. In Flying Free, he provides us a rich reservoir to draw from as we learn to face personal tragedy and resume full flight."
-- Dr. Dave Earley, Director of the Lovett Center for Ministry Training, Director and Chair of Pastoral Leadership and Church Planting, Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary
"I encourage you to read Dean's story, and to apply the wisdom he shares. His faithfulness and humility are rare for men in his caliber. I've had the honor of his mentoring, and friendship, through good and tough times in both of our lives, and you would do well to add this to your library, and better, to your understanding of character."
-- Daniel Comp, technology entrepreneur
