The producers of The Aviators, a new television series, have released the first preview of the show at TheAviators.TV. The preview features footage obtained at EAA’s AirVenture, including the A380 and a segment on Icon Aircraft’s A5.
“We get emails every single day from members of the aviation community thanking us for putting The Aviators together,” said the show’s Executive Producer Anthony Nalli, “and that doesn’t count the flood of emails and calls we’ve received from people interested in telling their story or showcasing their products, services, or destinations.”
The production team has accelerated their schedule and the show will now launch in the U.S. three months sooner than expected. It will be distributed by Albuquerque’s KNME Westlink to all 320 Public Broadcasting Stations in June 2010 and will air in Canada and internationally shortly thereafter.
“The demand and anticipation for the show has been growing at such an incredible pace that we decided to roll up our sleeves and work to get the show out sooner than the original September date,” said John Lovelace, long time aviation television producer and creator of The Aviators.
“Sponsors have also been extremely supportive, which makes it easier for us to deliver to the public what they are constantly telling us they so obviously want,” added Nalli. “The Aviators Magazine is also in the works and will launch as the show premieres.”
Additional previews for The Aviators will be posted on TheAviators.TV every month or so leading up to the premiere.
