Fly Now! Launches Book with Autograph Event At Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum

By Carmelo Turdo
The Fly Now! book was officially released to the public during a book-signing event at the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum Saturday.  The book's author and Fly Now! brand originator Brian K. Kissinger and The Aero Experience Team were on hand to autograph the first 50 copies for pre-order customers and new orders as supplies last.  The book contains photos contributed by The Aero Experience Team, with a photo also by guest photographer Gary Austen, chronicling the making of the Fly Now! movie and other aviation topics featured in The Aero Experience stories from 2015.  The first 50 autographed books also contain Fly Now! The Movie DVD as well.  They can be ordered through the Fly Now! website.  

"The Aero Experience Team is honored to be part of the Fly Now! book and movie projects," said The Aero Experience Founder Carmelo Turdo during the event.  "It is great to have the whole team here today with Brian Kissinger to launch the book after working all year to gather photos for our aviation feature stories.  It has been an awesome year, and we look forward to an even better one in 2016."  The Aero Experience Team often works in pairs to cover the most territory, and having all team members together for an event signifies an important occasion!  It also poses a dilemma by having the photographers as the subjects rather than behind the camera.  In this case, Ellen Cachat ably stepped in to capture the moment in the following photos:
