Bless the guys keeping her in the air, with such love and enthusiasm!

flygc's insight:

We were honored to have Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and Jeff Skiles of “Miracle on the Hudson” fame serve as our honorary Young Eagles Chairmen from 2009 through 2013. One of the great things about getting to know these two gentlemen was seeing how passionate they are about all aspects of aviation. We were thrilled when they had the opportunity to get checked out in a beautifully restored Douglas DC-7, a true classic from the golden age of airline travel. We were even more excited when we got to send one of our videographers along to tell the story.

I've understood a lot more in this video than the past 6 months of ground school! Absolutely amazed!

flygc's insight:

Every pilot should understand at a fundamental level the principles of aerodynamics that keep their aircraft aloft. In this video, we dig deep into the principles of flight, and just what it takes to get an airplane off the ground and keep it in the air.
