Airpark TV- The Idea
Airpark is a film project to create a pilot episode of a children’s TV show that will bring the world of aviation, the spirit and the goodwill of the aviators, stories from the past and present heroes, to the TV and pad screens of kids & to educate and inspire them to take an interest in aviation. The show will be entertaining, fun, educational and will help promote existing youth outreach programs and other aviation activities and crafts. Watch the promo here!
There will be 7 regularly featured segments. They include history, educational, cool job segments, airshow hero segments and segments following real kids as they get to meet the heroes of today, take their first flights, work together with other kids in aviation workshops & activities, and interacting with the aviators. The show will be bringing the spirit of these aviators who give their time and money to reach out to youth, to the screen. The film/TV production is intended to reach young children and expose them to the world of aviation. It will provide learning, entertainment and inspiration and complement many existing outreach programs. It will feature real children learning and working on aviation projects and taking part in real life aviation experiences. We fully intend to promote and support the existing groups and efforts to get today’s youth involved in aviation.
It will provide ideas for other ways children can work on activities at home to further their learning, and hopefully provide inspiration for many to start taking more interest in their studies. The project has another purpose, to provide the foundation for upcoming projects where a formal apprentice ship for proven film students to get real hands on apprenticeships on real productions, complementing their studies and aiding them to get paid a bit to help with their schooling.
We intend to find the small airparks throughout the country and film segments about those local heroes, bringing those stories to life, and put together kid workshops at those locations for the kid workshop segments. We’ll film exsiting youth aviation outreach events. We fully intend to create a TV special that is a healthy, family friendly kid show where today’s youth can meet yesterday and today’s heroes, and get involved in healthy activities that they will have with them for life. We hope that the pilot TV special will demonstrate the program’s marketability and usefulness so that it could turn into a series for broadcast and webcasting.
