From the age of three, Shane Osborn dreamed of being a pilot. He began learning the skills he would need to fly as a member of the Civil Air Patrol, a branch of the U.S. Air Force, when he was just twelve years old. But it wasn’t until he graduated from the naval ROTC program at the University of Nebraska and joined the navy that his dream became a reality. For five years, Osborn practiced rigorous training exercises, working tirelessly day in and day out until he advanced from navy pilot to mission commander.All Lt. Osborn’s flying skills were put to the test when a Chinese F-8 II fighter jet collided with his EP-3E ARIES II plane during a U.S. surveillance mission through international airspace. The impact severely damaged Osborn’s aircraft, sending it plummeting toward the ocean. With almost certain disaster looming, Osborn managed to gain control of the crippled plane and land it safely on the Chinese island of Hainan—saving the lives of his twenty-three crewmates.In Born to Fly, Shane Osborn describes these terrifying events in vivid detail, along with the years of dedicated training that made the emergency landing possible. This is the inspirational story of a boy with a dream, and of the extraordinary discipline and courage that made him a hero.

An insider look at the downing of an EP-3 Orion during its surveillance missions. Being an EP-3 pilot may not be as glamourous as a tailhooker, but it doesn't mean that they are in any less dangers. Shane Osborne is captured and recovered. Thank God for our US Navy!

This book is very technical and was boring for my 6th graders to read. It was a fabulous book, however, just did not catch the interest of my students at that age level. What a story of a pilot who is the epitome of an American hero!
Bloodfire
It is easy to read. It is interesting reading I have to finish it. I am familure with some of the situations and places the pilot went!

There are quite a few problems with this book: typos!!, technical inaccuracies (Shane says he pulled the number 1 e-handle from the co-pilot's seat...you physically cant reach it from there, for one example), blame-pointing (Shane says that Wendy, the flight engineer, just sat there in shock instead of acting to shut down the number 1 engine, for one example), and self-glorifying praise for a pilot that put self-preservation above his oath as an officer to put the interests of America first.
Sure it's easy for me to say this, I wasn't in the plane, yada yada. But that's what he's paid to do..to be in harms way and to put the needs of America above his own. Shane says he wanted to be a Top Gun, a fighter pilot, and P-3s were his very last choice when he was unable to get into the jet-pilot training lineup. So he took that arrogant, stick-jockey jet-pilot attitude to a slow reconnaisance plane.
The book is marginally entertaining for those who don't know or understand the P-3 or EP-3E community. For those who do know that world, this book will make you really mad and confirm your suspicions about Shane's character.
Anardred
A truly gripping story of a "Brave Crew" lost at sea serving their country. You won't be able to put it down.
Rolorel
This book is interesting for my students who are not prone to reading, especially the boys. It's an interesting story.
Landamath
Shane Osborn overcame a great deal to live his dream of serving his country. This is an incredible story of courage, integrity and character from a young man of whom we all should be proud. Born to Fly is a must read.
I spent many years working on this type of plane, thus my interest. The title gives away the problem. It's about Shane Osborn, not the incident at Hainan Island. Osborn's life is mildly interesting, but not worth an entire book.
