Our volunteer production crew members are "professionals" in their own right, from airline crews to TV and broadcast professionals. They contribute their time and expertise to make the various projects successful. During the year we provide extensive support for projects, perform safety seminars and provide a wide dissemination of safety related information to all interested parties. These activities are recorded and produced specifically for the individual organizations who we "partner" with to promote aviation safety across the spectrum.

Simply stated, we are an organization that promotes aviation and aviation safety. The "broadcast" and "production" parts of the operation are tools (among others) that we use in order to accomplish those goals.
