Wilco Films at AOPA Aviation Summit



Will and I are pleased to announce our participation in the first-ever AOPA Aviation Summit "GA at the Movies" Luncheon.

AOPA President and CEO Craig L. Fuller will kick off this exciting event by presenting the Joseph B. "Doc" Hartranft Award and the Laurence P. Sharples Perpetual Award to recognize each winner's contributions to general aviation.

During the three-course lunch, attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look at two aviation movies, "A Pilot's Story" and "Amelia."  Will & I will talk with Mr. Fuller about why we're making the film, what's surprised us about pilots, and the highs and lows of the production process.

Then, key contributors from "Amelia" will share their insider perspective on how the freedom and adventure of the legendary aviator's life were captured on the silver screen.

  1. Been meaning to check out "Amelia". It's hard to go wrong with a Hilary Swank movie.

  2. I love how the movie "Up" profiled the young girl who wanted to be a pilot, sort of an animated Amelia Earhart. Too bad she died in the opening montage...that was really a tear-jerker for a Disney movie. I think we'll probably always wonder about what actually happened and the circumstances surrounding her death. She's a true national treasure.
