Flight To Heaven

2 Aug

Imagine getting a glimpse of heaven, a preview of life in God’s presence.
Could life here ever be the same?

Capt. Dale Black has flown as a commercial pilot all over the world, but one flight changed his life forever–an amazing journey to heaven and back.

The only survivor of a horrific plane crash, Dale was hovering between life and death when he had a wondrous experience of heaven. What he saw, what he heard, and what he learned there continues to ripple through his life and touch others.

Against all odds, Dale miraculously recovered from his injuries and learned to fly again. Now, with his life as a testament, he shares his inspiring story–offering hope and encouragement for those dealing with serious injuries or the loss of a loved one, and those looking for assurance about this life and the next.

Capt. Dale Black is a retired airline pilot who dedicated his career to improving aviation safety. He has flown for over 40 years with more than 17,000 hours in a variety of commercial jets. Dale is still an active aviator and is co-owner of a real estate company. He has also been a Bible teacher, a television and radio show host, evangelist, and volunteer missionary pilot in over 50 countries. Dale and his wife, Paula, are parents of two grown children and live in Southern California.

Q&A with Captain Dale Black


My Impressions:

Flight to Heaven is a riveting first-person account from Captain Dale Black, the only survivor of an unsurvivable plane crash.  His determination to overcome the many disabilities facing him is truly inspirational.  The odds of surviving and recovering the plane crash that Black experienced were so high that he was seen as a marvel: by the media, the doctors, friends and family.  For the past 40 years Black has attributed his survival and recovery to God and has dedicated his life to serving Him and sharing His love.  But what Black did not disclose in the aftermath of the crash, until now 40 years later, is what happened to him during the 3 days he remained in a coma.

Dale Black was a 19 year old college student intent on flying.  His world was focused on achieving his dreams of adventure.   But following the crash that broke his body, he became a changed man.  During the 3 days he spent in a coma, God gave him a glimpse of heaven and instilled in Black the love that He has for people.   Flight to Heaven is the story of Black’s journey towards healing and true faith in the God who created everything.

Christians in America often view the supernatural with skepticism.  No one really believes that anyone could possibly have a real encounter with God and heaven.  People who claim these things are often thought of as frauds or crazy.  Put your skepticism aside and read Black’s book.  It is a sincere account told by a man who reveals his own flaws in the light of God’s power and strength.  Check out Fight to Heaven today!

Highly Recommended.
