His stories about the Vietnam War and flying in Alaska’s whiteout are brilliant. Most of the time, I felt as though I was sitting in the cockpit with him and experiencing everything firsthand.

Former US Army Vietnam pilot, Robert Fulton was at the height of his career as director for an Emergency Management Services flight program in Southwest Florida, when his job suddenly vanished overnight. Just three months shy of being vested in the company retirement plan, Robert's dream and career were shattered. Without an aircraft to fly for the first time in 50-years, Fulton was deeply depressed and grounded.
“I never expected reinventing my career at age 74 could be this much fun and attract so many amazing opportunities and new connections,” says Fulton.
His new book, Up in the Air, A Pilot's Journey helped him overcome depression and PTSD, through journaling an aviation memoir. At the suggestion of a Retirement Coach/Author, Marianne Oesher, he turned to journaling as an outlet for his darkness. Robert defied all odds – not only did he write a book, he penned a screenplay, created a podcast, eBook, audio book and became an award-winning speaker.
“Robert Fulton shares his aviation story from humble beginnings that led him, against great odds, to learn, grow and succeed as a pilot and leader on many types of aircraft and helicopters," said Howard Putnam, Former CEO Southwest Airlines & Braniff International.
Robert Fulton’s new book, Up in the Air, A Pilot's Journey chronicles his successful 50-year career with over 20,000 flight hours – from 300 combat missions in Vietnam (at age 21) to saving lives as a Life Flight pilot (helicopter EMS), Fulton takes you on his harrowing journey.
No stranger to reinvention, Robert has successfully navigated the ups and downs of his career as a pilot, from combat missions in Vietnam to crop dusting, logging, EMS hospital pilot, and a stint at Eastern Airlines.
A family man, Robert helped raise five children while zigzagging them across the continent, wherever his new jobs took them.
