Austin Jackson - Young AA Pilot & Role Model

On April 17, 2017, Austin Jackson will speak to the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs.


Here is an excerpt from a recent AJC article on Austin Jackson by Ann Hardie: "Austin Jackson set his sights on becoming a pilot when he was a kid. What he didn’t count on was becoming an author, motivational speaker, entrepreneur and philanthropist along the way. But that’s what has been happening since Jackson published his first novel, “Takeoff: Seeing Beyond the Clouds,” when he was a junior in high school as a way to pay for flight school. Three years later, the 19-year-old Fairburn resident talks to church, student and other groups about how to soar. He and some friends recently started an online company that sells clothing and other inspirational items with a takeoff theme. Meanwhile, Jackson is working on his second book. Oh yeah. He’s also going to flight school. Jackson’s book is available on Amazon."
