The Flightline is an aviation magazine/variety TV program enjoyed by pilots AND non-pilots. Help us bring the show NATIONAL.

FREE PREVIEW watch a few entire episodes to see how our show looks exactly "as seen on TV" (Without commercials). Many people have asked to see how our hosts tell these aviation stories so hopefully you will see our passion in bringing The Flightline to the nation! ...Click THIS LINK

We're asking 2,000 people to pledge $46.75 on average to reach our goal. If you know of a pilot or aviation enthusiast who can help, please send them this link and help spread the word. Together we can bring The Flightline to a National audience.

The Flightline TV Show brings you stories on all types of aircraft and the people that fly them.  Our goal (with your help) is to bring our program to a national audience. We not only provide stunning visuals and entertainment, but we'd like to inspire participation in the world of aviation whether as an enthusiast or maybe even as a career.

The Flightline tells the stories of aviation both past and present and we put the viewer right in the cockpit and along for the thrilling ride to see the incredible perspectives that pilots enjoy everyday.  We like to say "we're like an air show every week" except you're riding along, -- instead of behind the ropes.

The Horseman - F8F Bearcats

Aviation is under fire on many fronts….many pilots trained in the 70’s and 80’s both privately and professionally are reaching retirement….their ranks are not being filled by younger generations due to the challenges of time, cost, and access to the sport……at the Flightline we like to highlight not only the aircraft and the people but how anyone of any age can look to aviation for a vocation or as a special interest.

We've produced 13 episodes for telecast on FOX Sports (regional in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa) and the response has been positively overwhelming.  Our online videos have hundreds of thousands of views worldwide and the most frequent comment we here is "when can we watch your show where we live"?  There is no other national aviation magazine-style show on television that appeals to pilots and non-pilots alike.


Barnstorming with Nostalgic Wings

We'd like to bring the Flightline to all of America as well as being able to schedule production shoots, across the nation, not just the Midwest.  But we need your help to bring our show to a national audience.  We're just a small, three man crew that has invested thousands of hours of our time as well as most of our savings to get us started.  We need your assistance in helping offset some of our production costs and to make a commitment to a national network.  At the national level, a 13 week season can be as much as $195,000 to broadcast and another $140,000 to go out and produce, shoot, edit and deliver to the network.  With our experience over the past two seasons, we have developed a streamlined process to produce the 40+ stories we need to shoot for season #3.  Without your generous help, we'd be stuck in a chicken and egg dilemma…Companies that would consider sponsoring our show first need to see it on the air, yet to get our show on the air, we need sponsors …or your support to get us into and onto the air.


Log Cabin Fly-in

Anyone that has ever looked skyward at a passing airplane knows the fascination people have with flight and we ask that you join with us and keep aviation vibrant and a part of the American experience.
