Rotortrade to Host Pre-Launch of Stunt Pilot Fred North’s Memoir “Flying Sideways” at Heli Expo 2023

Published On: March 7, 2023

Rotortrade, global helicopter distributor, is proud to announce that it will be hosting the pre-launch of “Flying Sideways,” the book of the most famous stunt pilot Fred North, at Heli Expo 2023. The event will take place on the 8th of March, 2023 at 4pm, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

“Flying Sideways” is a gripping and heartfelt memoir that chronicles Fred North’s remarkable journey from a misunderstood boy in Africa with nothing but a dream to the world’s most sought-after Motion Picture Helicopter Pilot. With a world altitude record and over 200 film credits to his name, including blockbusters like Transformers, James Bond: Spectre, Mission Impossible, and Fast and Furious, Fred North’s story is nothing short of inspiring.

The book teaches us to bet on ourselves, to dream big then bigger, and that the most dangerous thing you do with your life is give up on it. It’s a story about having the courage to push the limit and the humility to redefine it.

Visit us at Booth #B4009 to meet Fred North and be among the first to pre-order a signed copy of “Flying Sideways.”  Additionally, the official press release, will be shared live on Instagram videos on both Fred North’s and Rotortrade’s official accounts.
