Celebrate Midwest Aviation This Winter with the Fly Now! Book and Movie!

By Carmelo Turdo
The premiere of the Reality Aviation Documentary Fly Now! The Movie took place at the St. Louis Hi-Pointe Theater on October 17.  The film chronicles the adventures of aviators from around the country as the movie crew and their trusty homebuilt Pietenpol aircraft travel from St. Louis to Lakeland, FL, Oshkosh, WI and many places in between.  After much hard work, the self-funded, independent film got its wings in front of a home-town audience.  A limited amount of Fly Now! gear - T-shirts and caps, are now available at the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum.

The Fly Now! The Movie team and The Aero Experience are now proud to announce the publishing of the accompanying Fly Now! book, written by Brian Kissinger and illustrated by The Aero Experience.  The book chronicles the Fly Now! spirit with inspirational words from Brian Kissinger and photos from the year of Midwest Aviation activities.  The first 50 autographed, hard-bound books with DVD movie are now available for pre-order at only $50!  To place your order, contact Carmelo Turdo via Facebook or order directly here.  Orders will be available December 12 at the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum rollout event or by mail.
