The creation of America's premier airline amidst the global coronavirus pandemic.
The authors take us on an real time in-depth journey which documents how novel businesses can be forged under the most adverse conditions. In early 2020, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a worldwide pandemic, and many governments, including the United States, shut their economies down. In these bleak business conditions, major airlines grounded hundreds of thousands of flights, halting travel and commerce. With the stock market in free-fall, evaporating trillions in wealth in a matter of days and weeks, this was the time where young entrepreneurs would attempt to revolutionize domestic air travel. The authors, embodying the spirit of eternal optimism, give the reader an inside look at how these difficult times caused by a pandemic give rise to tremendous opportunities found by those willing to seek them out. A realtime documentation, Rise Above is a business, social, and political commentary that shows how American ingenuity, dedication and vision can make the best of any situation. As Henry Ford said "When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it." And so Hunter Airways is taxiing onto America's runway and is ready and waiting for take off.
