For the majority of the general public, exposure to general aviation only comes by hosting of a local air show. Very few are able to experience flight in a small private plane let alone understand the fundamentals of air travel and its impact on the local and national economy. As intimately familiar as pilots may be with these challenges, most lack the ability and character to connect with the non-aviation community.
Someone with whom the public could trust and respect would need to step up and promote general aviation in a cohesive and personable manner. Who better than the man who epitomized characters displaying adventure, rebellion and determination on the silver screen? Hollywood aside, these traits flow deeply within the persona of Harrison Ford.

Harrison Ford pilots helicopters on rescue missions, flies his plane across the Atlantic, can navigate a 60ft narrowboat along English canals and prefers to ride his motorbike rather than sit in chauffeur-driven cars.
So when it comes to filming he has always insisted on performing his own action scenes. He has been punched, kicked, thrown through windows and has the sprains, scrapes, cuts and bruises to prove it. “I am like a battered old Ford,” he tells me. “And I keep on coming back for more. If it doesn’t look real on the screen then an audience does not believe what it sees.”
Harrison Ford stars in a new video that celebrates 100 years of commercial flights. In a special message to the 70th IATA AGM, he reminds delegates of the amazing history of flight and how they are the stewards of aviation future.
More to come soon!
