Sit back and enjoy an outstanding documentary about the passion of mastering flight.
26 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a masterpiece! You can almost smell the Jet A at the edge of the runway. The lighting is some of the best you will see in a documentary ... period.

The boom and gyro aerial shots are absolutely breathtaking. When it was over I took out my log book and logged a half hour PIC.

It is a great movie to watch on low IFR days for all people who love aviation and those dedicated souls and loved ones that support us and understand our passion. This film speaks to us. Hopefully it will encourage others to take a trip to their local strip. When they get there, please, be ready to answer the questions this film stimulates.
