So Fly (Ft. The Alexanders)

This video was done for Father's Day at IMPACT Church. We headed out to Charlie Brown Airport here in Atlanta, GA to film the interviews. When I first got the assignment, I thought it would be a cool project. But when we actually sat in on the story, it was so inspirational that I felt like this video had to turn out amazing, because the story is just that... AMAZING.

The Alexanders started the ACE program, The Aviation Career Enrichment weekend flight academy. This program launched in 1980 and is still going strong. Many of the African American pilots that are flying today, have gone through this program and crossed paths with the aviation legend, Julius Alexander.

Not only does Mr. Alexander teach aspiring pilots how to fly, but he taught his son and his grandson how to fly as well!!! Now how cool is that? Check out the video.
