The Sky Is Not The Limit The Life of Australia’s Top Gun By Matt Hall and David Lyall
“I would sit there at the controls and think: I′m going to go left, and I can. I want to go right, and I will. I don′t have to follow the road. I don′t have to follow rules. I don′t have to ask anyone – I can go left when I want, I can go right when I want. I had discovered the freedom that has kept me flying to this day.”
Since he was old enough to notice planes, Matt Hall wanted to be a pilot. Flying with his Dad in a glider, making models at home and meeting officers from the Air Force fuelled his ambition. So when he was accepted into the RAAF′s grueling training school it seemed a dream come true. But dreams take hard work and focus – and the willingness to make your own luck.
From the rigours of his first professional job as a Top Gun fighter in the Battle of Baghdad where he experienced extreme fear and loss for the first time, to his post Air Force career as a professional racer where he has survived near fatal situations to become one of the most renowned pilots in the world, Matt Hall has led an extraordinary life.
His story is a rare glimpse into a normally closed world where skill, quick thinking and a cool head can mean the difference between life and death.
