About Phil Latz

Phil, was born in a church Hostel in isolated Central Australia - no doctor there. He grew up on a Lutheran Mission in desert isolation with Aboriginal friends and ate snakes, lizards, grubs & ants. He survived penny-less Church boarding school life after a 3 day, 1000 mile steam train trip. Then various different apprenticeships, underground mining, a broken heart and love affairs. Persistence saw him morph into a world-wide chopper mechanic/pilot/manager. The media declared him dead at various times but his `angel' saw him through.
Religious problems and skiing in Europe were followed by a society wedding in England, living/working in countries from Fiji to UK, before divorce occured. Phil was involved with con-men, suffered near ruin, and saw corruption in many countries. He describes his amazing, `paid to see the world' life in frank detail and shows examples. Further info & reviews are on his website & at Amazon.

Review by: Garry Gnapp on May 2, 2010 :
What an excellent story! Encompassing white knuckle helicopter flying adventures and a unique reflection of Australian Social History it kept me reading - I just couldn't put it down. I highly recommend Flying With My Angel - surviving religion, sex and helicopters to anyone, helicopter pilot or not, but for the latter it's compulsory reading!

Thanks Phil
