EAA Flies Reality TV Show
Well, it seems like everyone has a reality show these days and EAA is next up. Starting April 28, the trials, tribulations, challenge and honor that comes with earning a private pilot certificate will be a weekly feature on the Discovery Wings Channel. The 13-week series Learning to Fly will follow Kyle, an actual student (no closed courses and professional drivers on this set) and her instructor through the process that pilots all remember but can often find so difficult to describe to the uninitiated. "We know that millions of people have considered learning to fly but have hesitated because they don't know what's necessary to reach that goal," said EAA President Tom Poberezny. The show should remove some of the mystery. The filming took place at EAA headquarters at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh. The series was produced by EAA Television. The first five episodes will premiere April 28 to May 2. Check listings for times in your area.
