Last Friday I got to attend a kick off Investor Party for Air and Space Television. It was a great event with a number of aviation and broadcasting notables in attendance. I am happy to have been one of the original investors in this exciting endevor to bring a quality channel about flight into being.
I had been originally approached by Phil Hurst over a year ago about the idea while he was still working at the Golf Channel. He was the first employee hired when the Golf Channel was at the stage Air & Space Channel Television is today. Phil had a dream of using his knowledge, connections and passion for aviation to create Air & Space Television and kept me in the loop as his dream unfolded. Recently I became one of the initial investors to help take it to the next level. The Golf Channel was recently valued at over $1 Billion!
I have several motives for being involved. One, I think there is a void for a product like this if delivered properly. Second, I see it as a great opportunity and outlet for some of what Fantasy of Flight can contribute in the way of product content and direction. And third, I want to learn and understand this business because . . . who know’s? . . . You might see a Fantasy of Flight Channel one day!
There is some great talent behind the beginnings of this so stay tuned as Air & Space Television begins to sprout its wings!
