EAA TV Shoots New Wings To Adventure Series

Special Viewing Planned For Theater In The Woods 

The award-winning EAA Television Department has been busy the past several months shooting Wings to Adventure, an aviation series set to premiere this month on The Outdoor Channel 2HD, its new high definition channel. The program will also air on TOC's regular cable channel for those who don't receive HD programming, and EAA AirVenture visitors can catch a special viewing on July 30 at Theater in the Woods.

Executive Producer, pilot, and on-camera talent, Tom Gresham, brought the idea to the network as an alternative to their line-up currently dominated by hunting and fishing shows. He contracted EAA-TV to shoot the footage based on its notable track record in aviation programming.

EAA TV's Scott Guyette is the show's director and primary videographer, while Scott Perdue and Robb McAllister are co-producers. Veteran freelance cameraman and editor Jim Soyk is also on-board, as the show looks to capture the pilot audience with an initial 26 shows.

"It's great to be producing aviation television again," Guyette (below, right) said. "We needed to find a home for aviation programming and The Outdoor Channel was looking for an aviation production company…so it was a perfect match."
 
As a series created by pilots about pilots, Wings to Adventure gives general aviation enthusiasts some of the programming they have craved since the demise of the Discovery Wings Channel earlier this year. EAA TV produced several highly regarded series for that network, including From the Ground Up, Learning to Fly, as well as numerous specials based on EAA AirVenture Oshkosh events.

The all-new series is shot in high-definition (HD) and features a magazine format highlighting various aircraft and the people who fly them. Also included are segments covering new technical advances, pilot tips, and flight-friendly destinations. The series will air on various cable and satellite providers throughout the United States.

And as a special treat to EAA AirVenture attendees, a special viewing will be shown in HD during the evening program at Theater in the Woods on EAA AirVenture Saturday, July 30.

The program premiers on The Outdoor Channel on Monday, June 27, at 4:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. Central), and for the high definition version (TOC2HD), July 2, 6 a.m. (5 a.m. CT). Check your local listings for repeat and series times.

Among the already completed episodes are:

Episode 1: Visits to "The Hard Eight," a finger-lickin' Texas barbeque; and Bourland Field Estates, where the taxi-ways come right up to your front door. Also featured: two vintage aircraft, a Stearman and a 1949 Swift.

Episode 2: Aircraft featured - a Cirrus and a vintage Tiger Moth. Visit Cedar Mills Resort where you can fly-in, catch your supper and relax in style.

Episode 3: Featured aircraft include a de Havilland Beaver and a Maule. A visit to the Dallas Metroplex and a tip on how to keep a plane's leading edge clean, plus an interview with collector Reb Stimson.

Episode 4: Kermit Weeks' meticulous P-51C at Florida's Fantasy of Flight, plus a "hospital" for ailing warbirds, a visit to Wurlitzer Manor, a profile of the Leza AirCam, and an engine monitoring tips for aircraft owners.

Episode 5: A trip to the San Juan Islands in the Pacific Northwest to look at a 1929 Travel Air, and to the opposite coast, to Cedar Key, FL…for a look at the Pitts Model 12 factory.

Episode 6: Using the Cirrus SR-22 for personal travel;: the Military trainer for 1946, the Chipmunk; and a visit to Wallaby Ranch in central Florida.
